My twitter stream — okay, “trickle” might be more accurate — has for the past few weeks mostly been about my continued work on our backyard chicken coop (more on that later).

While the coop isn’t quite done, earlier this week we took delivery of its future inhabitants.  As usual, @amyj has better pictures, but I’ve got webcams and sensors!  You can follow along with the growth and play of our baby chicks here.  They mostly just eat and poop, but they’re really cute while they’re doing it.  [Note: you can click around in the interface to see different views, sensor readings, etc.]

At the moment there are eight chicks, due to an order processing error (we only ordered four).  Hopefully we’ll find the extras a new home soon, and it’ll just be the four again.
