I'm fairly certain that this is the one used at a couple of the schools where I work. It was a bit glitchy but we got live feeds so the kids could watch them hatching in real time. Fun stuff!

We've used NCH BroadCam for a Chick cam and most recently Trout cam, as we watched new young trout growing.  Works great and is free- only free for 2 weeks.

Hi Russell,


You can stream from Scopia Desktop, the desktop videoconferencing/online meeting application that is compatible with the LNV (Learning Network of Vermont). Let me know if you’d like more information.

Subject: Streaming Chickens


Hello Listserve,


I've got a teacher that want's to stream the hatching and first week of life of some chickens that will be arriving soon.  


I know and it's crazy simple to get up and running, but people have to watch 30 seconds of a commercial.  I'm thinking most folks won't stick around for a 30 second commercial to watch 15 seconds of chickens doing not much.  :)


Does anyone know of a similar service without as much advertising or a just plain better solution?  Should take nothing more than a netbook webcam and incur no expense if possible.  


I'd love to embed the stream on my website, but realize this may be pushing free services.


Thanks for any help or suggestions!
