Chick-cam – Live Hatching from Egg to Chick

Introducing Chick-cam

Today sees the launch of Chick-cam, an initiative by ethical egg producer the happy egg co. The Chick-cam will be live on the happy egg company’s website and on Google+ from 12pm Monday 25th of March.
The Chick-cam will follow the first four days of life of 17 newborn chicks, using three cameras including night-vision cameras to give viewers a truly unique view into the world of chickens. The Chick-cam will be live 24/7 so you won’t miss anything.
The incubators will be closely monitored and controlled by a team of experts to ensure the chicks have everything they need. The chicks will all be re-homed to The Happy Chick Company’s trusted network of poultry owners and smallholders.
The aim of the Chick-cam is the help educate people and encourage people to love chickens.
 You will be able to watch the Chick-cam live on the happy egg website in real time. There will also be interviews with hen experts and the opportunity for viewers to win Happy Egg prizes. The Chick-cam will also be available on Google+ Hangouts on Air so there’s no reason to miss it.
 I am really looking forward to watching the Chick-cam with Maxx. He has recently been taking an interest in where things come from – the how’s, why’s and when’s. He is becoming very inquisitive and I think this will be the perfect opportunity for him to see things first hand, something which we wouldn’t normally be able to do.
I can’t wait!

    My son and i watched one hatch last night at 3 minutes past 7. We saw it start to peck a hole at around 6.30 but he had to have a bath (daddys turn) so i was made to promise to shout as soon as it started to come out of the egg properly. He normally goes to bed at 7 (he is 4) so i let him watch until it was properly out of its egg. He wanted to watch the others hatch so i explained it would take a long time and as soon as he got up we would have another look and see if they had all hatched and they had. lovely fluffy chirpy chicks.

    we seen newly hatched chicks at our local farm, they have had quite a few new arrivals, but my son loved the chicks the most (daughter loved the rabbits) They had chicks still in the eggs in an incubator. joe was fascinated, yet puzzled as to how a chicken came out of something that he eats… oh dear
