I hope I am not offending a support group by offering to pay...I may be missing some type of protocol.
I would like to use Arduino to track my chickens and when they lay eggs. I thought his would be easier, but I have found that I know a lot more about chickens than I do programming. I got the idea from the RFID Cat Door. http://www.instructables.com/id/RFID-cat-door/
I want to track the chicken when she walks through the ring to a nesting box and then when she walks away. The time she spends in the nesting box should give me a good idea as to whether or not she has laid an egg.
The parts I think I need are: 1. Arduino 2. SD Card Shield - http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/sd-card-shield-p-492.html?cPath=109 3. RFID reader - http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/125khz-rfid-module-uart-p-171.html?cPath=144_153 or http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/electronic-brick-125khz-rfid-card-reader-p-702.html?cPath=144_153 4. Real Time Clock - http://www.ladyada.net/wiki/partselector/ic#rtc
Anyway, I hope that is clear as that is all I have been able to understand. I realize that I know more about chickens than programming. I would rather spend my time with them than on the computer so I am willing to pay for help.
If you are willing to help then please send me a message.
