The hatch cam happens for a week each spring!
Faculty and staff at the OSU Extension Office in Astoria set up cameras to bring the livestream to the public. After they’ve hatched and they are ready, the chicks go home with Extension 4-H members, who care for them and show them at the county and state fairs.
