    Hey Diane I was on really late last night! Had been really busy all day but couldn't go to bed without checking what the girls were up to! The posts got funnier and funnier as the hen got closer and closer and ... Does the camera throw out any warmth?

    Can't see any hens at the moment - lovely lights though. Sounds really windy and the hencam sign is blowing about. If I were a hen I'd be tucked up in bed too!

    Hey Red - Thanks :) Its already really nice to be able to find this one right away. For all us WISDIHers :D

    Kate - I went back to look and see that you were on at about 12:45 pm or, put another way, almost 1:00 in the morning! That is hen dedication! I used to think the cam was egg shaped. But I think its a rectangle... Maybe it is a little warm.

    The rain is so loud its drowning out or radio here! Poor chickies (and hen humans.)

    I took my son training to the rink, got home and had a cup of tea (how English!) then hen-cammed before bed. Had to get my daily dose! My internet connection is shocking at the moment - we had to change from cable to Sky when we moved home that its an awful connection via a broadband phone line.

    Can see 2 black hens, but no Milly. There's an odd noise though, like someone banging or moving around in there but neither Tilly or Penny seemed bothered (one of them is awake) so perhaps its Milly by the cam.

    How much sleep to chickens need?

    Milly is all hunkered down behind the first little wall - is she having a dirt bath? Tilly and Penny were even further back, but as I've been working for a few minutes instead of watching, they've rushed the camera and surprised me when I've come back to it!!!

    Poor Lynn, hope you feel better soon!

    Yeah, if Milly was lying in the sand pit behind the wall then she was probably dust bathing.

    Chickens seem very lively...Tilly and Penny are pointing their bottoms at the camera. Niiiice :-\

    Wow an hour earlier and I would have seen some real action :) Now I'm watching P & T in their sleeping area with their beaks sometimes touching, with a little flash of white behind them. You're right Kate they do look like Milly's bodyguards or like those little dogs that sit at the entrance to Chinese temples.

    OH, darn! It's only 6 pm and they're in bed....I guess it's just too late for them and so dark and probably cold....But..I do see the playpen all light up with the little lights and the sign is very clear.

    I will check later to see how the lovelies are doing with their beauty rest!!

    Any Robin Hood fans out there? I'm downloading torrents of Series 2 late Saturday or on Sunday, just as they air in the UK...I suspect they will start here in January, since they are now rerunning Series 1 again on Sundays in the late afteroon and then in the wee hours. I think they ran it about 6 times

    The girls have chosen a linear order this evening with one of the brown gals tucked in the far corner and Milly to the right.

    You were driving TO work at 4pm Diane? Is it the night shift?

    'Middle' hen has her eyes open, and a slight noise outside made 'lefty' open hers too. At least they both have eyes, Milly hasn't even got a head tonight!

    I enjoyed the first series of Robin Hood Gloria, but some of the second series stories are a bit far fetched! The worrying thing is, as the programme goes on I'm finding Sir Guy more and more attractive! I saw a picture in the paper of 'Robin' and his real life girlfriend - she's an actress in a Brit 'soap' (Emmerdale) and plays Katie (for anyone who watches it). She is VERY pretty, long blond hair, lovely figure - he's a lucky man (and she's a lucky girl!)

    I set my own work schedule and over time I've come to prefer evenings. I finish at 8:30 at the latest. I miss all the horrible Seattle traffic and don't have to wait too long in a ferry line on the way home. Works out pretty nicely as I'm a night owl. And because I only work 3 to 3.5 days a week...

    I haven't seen a Robin Hood series. Don't know if it played here.

    T & P both have their eyes open at the moment. Milly is off in dreamland.

    That sounds like a good arrangement! I get stuck in 'school' traffic to and from work. I hate inconsiderate drivers who don't indicate, no lane discipline, dawdle at 40 in a 60, that sort of thing, so get very annoyed on my journey! Is your job interesting?

    Milly's grown a head since i was here an hour ago! All 3 girls just sprang wide awake (must've been something outside - haven't got the speakers on) but soon settled down again.

    Milly's lovely feather ruff is on display but no sign of eyes or beak...the other two are also hunkered down, right next to each other...

    Kateb, thanks for the feedback on RH and the Emmerdale/Katie business...
    Well, I guess I was wrong....I actually thought that "Robin" (Jonas Armstrong) might be gay. No specific reason at all, just had that thought, but now I know I'm wrong. I think I got that feeling when I saw a portfolio shot of him without the long hair, which revealed a thinning and receding hairline and he reminded me of a gay friend of mine from years ago. LOL!! Looks can be deceiving!

    Yes, some of the show is far-fetched but it's good fun and there are really no "costume dramas" on TV anymore, unless you happen to tune into some of the Spanish TV channels and bump into a costume-bedecked historical saga....so, I like it now a lot better than when it first started. I really didn't like it at all during the 1st series until I started watching the reruns because nothing else was on at all that was very interesting......

    Hey Lynn, how's your cold? Hope its getting better. Just as you were off to bed I was getting ready to come to work. Wish I could've swapped, got a sore throat and tired eyes today so would love to have a "duvet day"! :(

    Robin Hood isn't a comedy, but I'm sure its not historically accuate either! I don't think its supposed to be - its just Saturday evening (here anyway) entertainment.

    The girls are milling around at the back of the day-time area. I can see Milly clearly, and one of the others with her. Not sure where no. 3 is!!

    Great post Lynn :) I am now completely out of sync with seeing any awake hens... Too see them going to their sleeping quarters ... 11 hours ago; were you on at 12:30 am our time? I'm usually still up by then. I'll have to check it out.

    Wait...if it was 7 am (approx) hencam time when you were on; were you on at 3 am?

    As I write this it is 10:28 am in washington state & 6:28 pm at the hen house so - THREE AM Lynn? 2 am is about the time I need to crash.

    Yes, I stayed up till about midnight watching the girls. I put the chicken cam on first thing in the morning too, because my kitty loves to sit and watch the girls, she likes the sound to be turned up loud, so she can hear them. She'd watch them all day if I'd leave it on the hencam..she's a strange cat...and maybe a little bit spoiled rotten.

    Perhaps you should give your kitty a log-on, then she could post messages through the day!! Things like "purr-fect view this meow-ning", or "grrr-eat to see the hens ex-claw-ing the pen". (OK, I'll stop now!)

    I can see both black hens, but not Milly. I assume she's at the back again. Hen-on-the-left looks really big from this angle, and she fluffs up every now and then to look even bigger!!

    I saw your thread about PM and chat - I think "whisper" functions as PM (I sent you one somewhere...) Also, I think we are using THIS thread ("The Girls") as our version of a chat room :) As long as we comment on the girls as we go along. Partly - it doesn't end up with any photos in it. ANY of the threads with photos now bounce up & down the entire time I'm trying to read them. Sigh. Also this is the one thread almost everyone goes to because it about our lovely girls!! So it kind of ends up acting like the old chat room we had before. Especially since Red so kindly made it a sticky - it stays on top; easy to find.

    That's a GREAT comparison - the changing of the guard. I'm sure Neil can come up with a great video of that one. I can just hear the background music for it :) Have you seen the Utube hencam vids wazza?

    Penny's hiding in embarrassment.

    YESSSS! The cam is moooooving. Wheeeee! :D

    And Red is off to school. Seems so strange as it is midnight here. Yawn.

    I feel deprived now - I got into work early but had to write out 2 birthday cards first (my friend and my brother) to post later so I missed it all!!! :(

    I can see MIlly pottering around in front of the camera, but I think P and T must be at the back - the shadows are moving but I can't make it out.

    Chelsea is a gorgeous kitty - just like my Frank that died about 7 years ago. He loved EVERYTHING and used to hide spiders under the cooker so that his brother couldn't kill them. We called him Hari-krishna kitty!

    Have a good sleep America - I'll put in a day's work and see you later! x

    Lynn, absolutely love the pics of Chelsea watching hencam - and I thought we only helped bored and stressed humans :)

    Would you mind if I put the pic in the main site? It would make a nice blog post :) If Chelsea agrees of course.

    And sorry for not saying hello to you all this morning - we were running very late (again!), and moving webcams in the wet often fails to put me in a good mood ;)

    I'll remember tonight so if you are about at 6pm GMT.....!

    Hi Red. Hi wazza! :)

    Hehe - as I write this, she just said to Milly: *say goodnight in case anyone is watching the cam.* Then she said *goodnight* to us as well. :D Very sweet. I don't think we're ever ignored by the hen house gang. They put in A LOT of time for us.

    It is wierd to watch these hens lives and not be able to talk to them & their keepers, eh? I remember one time a cat was walking around the hen house and Luke was typing CAT CAT!! in a panic. A silent scream... It was a bad feeling at the time. Turned out the cat was just paying a friendly visit and Red was actually there keeping an eye on it.

    Maybe we should all get CB radio's :) then we could broadcast over the audio too.

    Yawn - I stayed up late and now I'm up early. Have to take my dog in for her haircut. Bye wazza, bye Red, bye hennies.

    Are you lot deliberately chatting without me?! I missed it this morning because I was writing birthday cards, and missed it this evening because of doing tea first!! Thanks for pointing out the 'on line' thing - hello Lynn! I'm hoping I'll get to see the "moving of the cam" again. Sounds like heavy rain there - put your coat on Neil!

    The rain sounds like it is getting heavier by the minute..we are supposed to get a snow storm this weekend here in Washington..I'd take heavy rain any day over snow. Snow is so icky and makes my outside chores so much harder..I hate the thought of it.

    I hate driving in it. We get it so rarely in the UK that we're all very inexperienced. The local councils are useless at clearing the roads too, and all they tend to do is throw a grit and salt mix down - which is no good at all with a few inches of snow on top!

    Lynn - you are a true farm woman! Do you ever sleep? I heard that about a bit of snow this weekend. My worst thing is when it snows (or has snowed previously and there is ice under it) on Mondays and Thursdays when I drive into Seattle. Uggggg. Sometimes I just have to cancel and lose mega bucks...

    Kate you probably don't buy snow tires over there then. Nothing quite as scary as lots of people driving in snow when its a rare occurance to them...

    Another term for the hencam dictionary. First we have WISDIH and now *riding the cam.* :D

    Neil - I would LOVE to see Chelsea's pic memorialized in the blog. :)
