Since getting our chickens at the beginning of August we’ve often wondered what they get up to when we’re not around. To find out the answer to this I rigged up a time-lapse at the weekend using my phone and an Android app called Framelapse Pro (there’s also a free version with limited configurable settings). You can see the (rather entertaining) result in the video below.

If you’re interested in making your own time-lapse I set the app to capture one image every 10 seconds over the course of five hours. As the chickens move pretty quickly at times this led to quite a frenetic result. Next time I’ll try shooting the images more closely together (perhaps every five seconds) to produce a smoother capture.
