    There's an egg that's showing a little activity now, so I thought I'd share.

    I can't promise my server will hold up under a big load, but it's doing okay so far. The webcam is 100% live, but only updates the image every 15 seconds, because hatching is slow and it would be a waste of bandwidth to do a full feed.

    One chick is out, and occasionally wanders into the picture, so you may see it from time to time.

    These are eggs I picked up three weeks ago from some Amish people in Tennessee. I'm not sure what kind of chickens they are. He said they were Gold Campines, but they didn't look anything like the Gold Campines I've seen. We shall see, I guess. [​IMG]

    That chick needs to be named Godzilla, running around and over everything like a wreckingball.
