Watch our hens, live on camera

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. 

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

We know you care about our hens, just like we do. Why not post a quick ChookCam™ comment below or on our Facebook page.

Fantastic, what a great idea. My kids loved seeing where their eggs come from. :-)

This made me feel real good today after watching the hens on the ChookCam!!! They look like they're really well looked after. I agree with Dave's comment on 16 April 2011 about having the ChookCam as a gadget on the desktop - I would watch them every day :-)

As a Vegan I do not eat eggs, but I buy them for my parents. I wouldn't buy any other eggs but yours. Seeing the girls scratching and being able to live their lives without cruelty makes me so happy and I hope one day, other egg farmers will follow suit for a more humane and enjoyable lifestyle for these lovely ladies!
Keep up the excellent work.

Well done!

I think you guys are doing an amazing job and i possibly get too excited about the ChookCam.

July 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterIndea

This is sooooooo good. I love comming on and checking out the chooks everyday, it really does brighten up my day. I recommened it to anyone who wishes to get excited by viewing chickens live.

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMitch

Great to see, literally, happy healthy chooks given room to do what chooks should be allowed to do.

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJasen

@Jasen As opposed to figuratively happy chooks? :)

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Keep up this wonderful work - does the heart good (in all sorts of ways) to see these happy, healthy and free girls running and doing what chooks should do - you are a shining light in the world of chooks.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercarlene

This is fantastic. I love chickens a lot but I also like to eat them and their eggs. Your chickens look like they're having a great time and are pretty happy. I'll be telling everyone (I feel sorry for them already) and I'll be buying Ecoeggs loyally from now on.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCathryn

a great sense of satisfaction that I chose Ecoeggs for the first time today. It certainly won't be the last time! All power to your vision!!

The chickens are soooo cute. I love ChookCam!

August 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDeclan Shipway

Wonderful idea this Chookcam! Congratulations! I am very happy to see all hens running freely and slapping their wings! I always supported free-range products in the past.

August 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarika of Perth, WA

AMAZING! Only ever buying ecoeggs! I think it is amazing to see how happy the chickens are! Eggselent

I'm glad you have free range chooks, I think it's great that you keep them out. My chooks like being outside too!!!!!!!!!!!

August 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercharlie

I don’t eat eggs, but I came across your website on a Tumblr blog and I just had to shoot you an email saying how fantastic it is that you strive so much to ensure the best possible living conditions for your chickens. The livecam idea is absolutely fantastic, and your FAQ is completely honest and forthright. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to create a better quality of life. The next step now is stopping the debeaking process, and it’s good to see that you’re considering alternatives to it. I’ve made of a note of your name and will look for your eggs in Woolworths next time I go shopping (my parents both eat eggs occasionally). Once again, thanks for bringing some fantastic fresh innovation and genuine concern to the Australian egg market.

August 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMaddy

OMG so cute! I read about this chook cam in Woolworths September issue :)

Some one needs to go clean the spider webs of the camera tho.

September 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCameron (GoldCoast)

We looove ChookCam, lol. We read about it in the Woolworths Fresh Magazine and thought to give it a go. The chooks look so happy, I'll be switching my egg purchases over to Ecoeggs to support you guys and those happy chooks :)

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea & Teagan

Really enjoyed watching the Chookcam. Thank you for making it available for all to see!! Having grown up in the country I certainly recognise a nice egg yolk, and therefore that the chicken has been correctly looked after and fed! Your eggs are delicious, and we will certainly continue buying them, and spread the word about Chookcam and your eggs far and wide. The chooks on your farm are very lucky!

September 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarol Neilson

Well done. What you are doing is the right way to fight animal cruelty in farming. Until now I have been unsure of which egg brand to trust. Now I know I can reach for ecoeggs with a clear conscience.

September 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNick

My 2 and 5 year old are completely in love with chookcam.....thank you for bringing them a world of chicken love and joy!

September 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFrogspot

Haha I love it!!!

September 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLana

Thank you Crikey for referring me to chookcam!

An instant feel-good and off to buy some ecoeggs for dinner.

September 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEunice

That was wonderful - my kids and i loved it!
Great to see some happy looking girls doing what they do best!

September 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

So reassuring to see the chickens from which we get eggs from. Great that ecoeggs are so open with letting everyone know the conditions of the yards unlike many other companies!

September 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCat

Great to see free range eggs that are really free range. I've usually bought ecoeggs for years just because they are the best quality, but now I'll get them all the time. Thank you so much.

September 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

hope this rain stopps one day soon. just bought my first eco eggs and was so excited about being able to check the chooks (after learning that 20 000 hens per hectare are considererd "free range" in some places.
So can't wait after 5 days of no camera to finally see those paddocks....

October 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJulica

Great to see your chookcam. i have just purchased your eggs today for the first time. i have been very very weary of "free range" labels. I am very impressed that you have an "open book" bascially, so that the public can really see where their eggs come from. Would be good to also see their sleeping arrangements indoors too. Your Chookcam should be compulsory in all poultry farms!! :) Well done, this is how chickens should be treated in egg productions. Impressed!

October 4, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterhanna

Would like to see a chook cam for battery hens so everyone who still buys cage eggs and non free range chicken can see the appalling chicken farming techniques they are supporting.

October 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTim C

Thanks for the camera - this is a great idea, and gives me more confidence in supporting your farms, the birds look happy. I've been buying your eggs for a long time now.

October 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDave

Good to see the chickens get to run around, however with the wet weather we've had, you probably need to move them (and maybe the camera too) to the other side of the farm where there's actual grass for them to pick at, it's obivious they've had a go at the grass that was there and now there's none left. I keep chickens myself, not a large number and know they can ravenos and even eat the roots of trees, let alone grass, but these girls look like they need a better pasture if they are truly free range?

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteragreatplace

Thank you for sharing the chook cam, it's great to see chooks just being chooks, not getting fed animals, hormones or antibiotics! Chook cam is the cherry on the cake :-)

November 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLouise

Just brilliant! Shared on FB with the world. I always encouraged friends, clients and family to buy Ecoeggs. Knowing where your food comes from is so important. This is just the perfect way to 'bond' with the chooks that supply breakie in the morning! Love it!! Thank you thank you.

November 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Anne Evans

Thanks for the effort of putting this up. It's great to see there are companies like you that don't want to keep everything about their practices with chicken farming secretive.

November 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShaun

Thanks so much for sharing! Consumers love sincerity / transparency.

November 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichael Wahhab

You're currently off line, but I'll come back later. Thanks for the pre recorded sample. It's good to know I can confidently buy your eggs knowing the hens are cared for in an ethical way. Thanks to ChookCam I'll now only buy your eggs.

November 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMargaret

Thank you so much for putting my mind at ease by installing ChookCam.
We are so fortunate to have people like you in the world. Please keep up the great work :)

November 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMrs. Larsen

Yes, this is a real feel-good idea for animal lovers! I too only buy eggs from free range hens. I couldn't get the web cam to move. It does look very hot there if the hens are anything to go by, as they're dashing for cover everywhere you look. Will visit this site again. Good to see the hens treated in a humane way instead of ONLY little commodities!!

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDelyse

I think its a great idea from now on I'm only going to by free range eggs.

November 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternoah

So glad you've done this! I've been buying ONLY ecoeggs for years - but always had a niggle at the back of my mind... are they for real? (You read so much about "free range" (not!) eggs. Great work thanks!

November 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNelly

I love the Chook Cam! It would also be nice to have a camera inside the shed so we can see the hens laying! :)

November 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Fantastic. I was just bemoaning how hard it is to decide which eggs to buy due to concerns about conditions and health of chooks and doubts about labelling, then I saw your link. I will certainly buy your eggs from now on (and maybe watch a lot more ChookCam - better than anything on Foxtel).

November 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRos

There's so much spin and tricky wording in advertising in marketing these days that it's hard to know what to believe. Thanks so much for you fabulous ChookCam! I can see in real time your happy and healthy chooks and know that I'm buying (and will continue to buy) a product I can trust. Thanks Ecoeggs!!

November 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKat

Love it... just zoomed around with the camera, checked out the chooks and chased some chicks with chookcam! I had a couple of your eggs for breakfast this morning and they were really good. Could you say thanks to the chooks from me.

November 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDarren Powell

WOW! I always buy ecoeggs and will continue to do so, ChookCam, amazing! :) It's fantastic to see those wonderful little chooks with so much space and not caged up. They look happy and free.

November 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKirsty

This is wonderful! So nice to see these happy, well fed chooks!

November 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

This is a chook resort and should be the norm not the eggception! My chooks would like to come for a holiday.

November 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAngela

Brilliant - keep up the good work - we will continue to buy ecoeggs knowing they are having a great, natural life - many thanks.

November 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFreda

Love to see animals being treated humanely. Good work.

November 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLynette

lol, nice idea fun to see.

November 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertyler

Good idea becuase it lets people know what enviroment they're in.
