    You didn't have anything better to do today and tomorrow, right?


    I have five french black copper marans eggs in there. Pretty sure one of them is a quitter, but since it's so hard to candle these guys, I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

    Of the remaining four, three are pipped. The fourth one was set about 14 hours after the rest, so she's a little behind.

    They aren't *supposed* to hatch until Thursday afternoon, but two of the eggs pipped last night, so I'm figuring by bedtime tonight, I'll have a chick or two.

    Hey, Good way to get your baby chick fix, watch other people's chicks hatch instead of hatching your own. Why didn't I think of this sooner. Good luck with the hatch.

    I was thinking of just using an IP camera as the area i want to film is about 40meters from router with no power available. Ill stream it like you have when its ready, you have inspired me for sure.

    I use a very basic webcam. Plug my incubator in so that it's fairly close to my laptop. Then I broadcast through UStream. It's very easy and simple.
