Another chicken webcam update

using a networked web camera to keep tabs on new born chicks

The new chicken webcam is waiting for the mailman to bring us a 200 foot ethernet cable from Amazon.

With any luck we'll have it in place for the next group of new born chicks which should start making some noise in a couple of weeks.

It snaps an image every minute or two, and most are average scenes of chick life, but the above picture seemed to capture them in some sort of group pose.

We've already been enjoying it in the prototype stage, but figured it was a bit too flaky on wireless to share with the world. I just hope you all enjoy it as much as we have already!

Mark sure has gotten a lot of mileage out of that logo cut off a bucket of fried chicken. :-)
