Webcam high speed video of baby chicks

What’s cuter than baby chicks? Well, not too much. To get our laying flock going, we got 50 Rhode Island Reds, which are a fantastic breed for pasture-based egg laying. Right now they are still just a few days old, so they need to be in a warm environment. I set up a special brooder for the chicks that combines safety with warmth and hygiene. I took an old laptop that I had kicking around with a broken monitor and hooked up a webcam and have a live stream from the brooder house. I compiled the first day of pictures into a video, which you can see here.
