Watch our hens, live on camera

ChookCam is your Free Range Cam on our Free Range Hens. Not an Egg Cam, a Chook Cam! Track our chooks roaming around all day.

ChookCam™ HoursChookCam HoursLocal farm time is

ChookCam™ is switched off when it is too dark for the camera, but our hens are out until near dusk. During periods of very heavy rain or violent storms our hens are tucked up safe inside, they do not like bad weather anymore than we do.

ChookCam™ on Mobile Devices

The controllable player requires Flash, so on most mobile devices you will enjoy a live stream of still images. You can also see a pre-recorded sample and other videos in our blog.

Using ChookCam™

A limited number of people can watch the live stream at the same time, and only one person at a time can control it. Just try again later if you can't get in straight away. There is a delay of a few seconds before it responds to the controls. Just be patient, the signal has to go back and forth over a mobile connection ;-)

We love to hear what you think

That is just the most cutest and pleasing sight I have seen in ages – thank you for the ChookCam!

Thanks for sharing the chookcam! It looks like it’s a hot day.

What a fantastic idea! The ChookCam was an ‘instant feel-good’ for me. The chooks look very happy and healthy, which is very pleasing indeed. I will continue to buy my eggs from EcoEggs, knowing the chickens are well cared for and the eggs are tastier as a result.

Many thanks to all EcoEggs – not all companies practise what they preach, but it’s evident that you do!

I love chookcam !! Eggcellent idea...:)

What a good idea this is! It's nice to see that the chooks really are out roaming freely within a nice protected environment. We've been buying Ecoeggs for quite a while now and very much appreciate this interaction. Very innovative on your part, and much enjoyed on ours.

Fantastic idea – we love it!!! Everyone at work has been checking it out and are pleased to see that the birds have beaks and feathers!

As a buyer who feels strongly about the conditions chickens are kept, we are impressed by the efforts you are making to gather feedback and provide supporting marketing information on your products.

Great effort, my wife and I felt very good seeing the live video feed, it would seem a good idea to keep running this as many claims made by growers are frankly not believable, and proof is a very strong medium.

Great work

Love it.

Lovely to see them all outside and some even flying. Of course I always buy free range eggs.

I am so relieved that people like you exist, I loved watching your hens on the ChookCam, they look very content, and a happy egg is a good egg. I will buy your eggs from today onwards.

Love the ChookCam. Would be great if it could be added to the desktop as a gadget!

April 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDave

I want what's best for your eggs - my tummy! Love the live action. Thanks

This is BRILLIANT! I buy EcoEggs anyway but this is such an outstanding way to reach out to peeps. Not only that, I just love that you Tweet bird updates and give us Hen Weather - CLASSIC!! *two thumbs up*

May 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

LOVE the ChookCam! It's great to see they are being looked after!

May 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterYessica

What a fantastic idea! As a somewhat eco-conscious city dweller and animal-lover I have always been interested in where my food is coming from and how the animals are treated, but it isn't always easy to find this information. With the confusion about free-range labelling of eggs it has been difficult to know which producers to 'trust'. I have just recently started buying EcoEggs, was very happy with the quality of the eggs, and took the time to visit your website, I'm glad I did :) ChookCam is awesome and its nice to be able to see how the animals are treated in real time. Very well it seems! Keep up the good work :)
