The HenCam is a a live webcam that provides a window into a healthy backyard laying flock. Terry Golson, the site’s owner, blogs about her hens, and provides information for people who keep chickens for their household use. Terry is a published food writer, so she knows how to make use of those good eggs ( and knows how different they are from eggs from CAFOs.) Terry’s children’s book, Tillie Lays an Egg, (Scholastic Press) features her backyard flock, and is the perfect way to introduce children to chickens.
