OR To send a treat you can send a super chat (Green super chats send popcorn!).

NEW: Now you can feed us! That’s right, you 👋, watching on YouTube, you can give treats to the chickens any time using Treat Packs or Super Chats/Super Stickers! It’s a fun way to donate to the stream, much like a Super Chat – except you also get to watch the birds come running to the feeder! Green (or higher) Super Chats send popcorn! All other Super Chats send treats! You can also use Treat Packs (see the links above to get one)

To use Treat Packs:
First, you’ll need to choose a pack. Treats are available in 12 and 35 Packs (to send one treat just send a Super Chat instead of a Treat Pack!). Once you’ve purchased a pack, you’ll receive an email with an activation code. PLEASE USE A VALID EMAIL AT CHECKOUT OR YOU WILL NOT GET THE CODE.

Once you’ve received the code, simply type !activate followed by the code in the live chat. Example, if your code was 4545454 you’d enter: !activate 4545454.

Once your pack is activated, all you have to do is type !treat and each time you do, food will come out of the feeder! For popcorn type !pop or send the 🍿 emoji. To check your remaining treats just type !treatbalance.

Just remember that treat packs must be used within 30 days of purchase or they will expire. But that shouldn’t be a problem because it’s so much fun to watch us eat!!


Beaver Seeds - Get Out and Grow Spring Sasquatch 300x250

HISTORY: Back in the Y2K, I had over 50 chickens and wanted to create an internet connected feeder with a live stream so people around the world could feed them, interact with them and enjoy watching them. My college roommates laughed, but I was sure there are other people out there that would find chickens to be as much fun to watch, and feed as I do. I’ve always believed that no animals are more fun to watch than chickens because they have an entire social structure that can be observed through the lens. I actually did have a live camera back then, but it could only support 20 viewers at once, and I needed a solid streaming platform and worldwide high speed internet to come into existence. There was also no good way to process payment for the treats, so I put the idea on the shelf for 19 years and waited for technology to catch up to this concept. Almost 20 years later, here we are!

DON’T WORRY! The chickens are fed more than enough each day and do not live solely on treats. Rewind and you can see them eating throughout the day.

The feeder is a custom WiFi feeder developed specifically for this project. You can see how it was made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3NpV

The feeder is also activated using an app on an iPhone and every feeding is verified by watching the camera to make sure that the birds are fed.GATE: The coop is equipped with a one-of-a-kind automatic gate system. This gate is both automatic and manually operated. The gate closes half way at sunset each day. Then, after the birds are settled for the evening, I (or a moderator can volunteer to do so) will close the gate by pressing a button in either the iPhone app that was developed for this project, or by the Moderator Portal. The gate will automatically open again at sunrise. This is to ensure as much safety as possible against nighttime predators. The sunrise time is posted to the blue banner at midnight each night.
THE BLUE BANNER: The blue banner at the bottom of the page tells you important information about the chickens.

EGGS: There is a picture-in-picture view of the upstairs of the coop. You can see the chickens laying eggs throughout the day.

BIRD NAMES: The birds all have names which are displayed in the TOP RIGHT along with other information such as breed and egg color.

If you ever see a technical issue, use the command !error to report it!

To learn more about a topic, enter any of the following commands in the live chat:

!bocktreat – exchange 30 bock points for a treat (requires an active treat pack)
!error – [Use this command to get a human’s attention for a technical problem]
!sos [Use this command to alert the owner if you see the chickens are in danger!]
