Things I have learned since joining BYC

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

It's been 3.5 years since I joined BYC and I have learned so much and will continue to learn something new every day. Many thanks to all the wonderful people here for sharing their knowledge and supporting me in my quest to learn more.

 

Things I've learned about and still learning about:

  • Worms and worming
  • Diseases
  • Incubation
  • Nutrition
  • Lice and mites 
  • Medications
  • How to do math
  • Supportive care

 

and much more... will add them later.

And so much that I have learned has come from YOU casportpony...you have imparted your amazing knowledge and no doubt you have saved the lives of many of our fowl...

 

You give far more than 100 percent and are there at the end of a telephone line to nurse us through the crises we face...

 

I for one am thankful that you are such a revered member of BYC...

 

So a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

 

Respect and much love...

Sincerely it is YOU that gives so much...have you ever counted the number of times that I (and others) have sent you a pm in desperation ...to look at a post of somebody in need of urgent help...where I do not have as much knowledge as you to give expert advice?

 

You are GOLD to all of us...!

 

You are such a wonderful asset to us here on BYC...

Peafowl.... 3.5 years ago I had no idea that there were so many colors and patterns. AS far as I knew, there were India Blues and Whites.

 

Here are some picture that fellow BYC members have put together:
