When I remembered it was April Fools this morning, I hotfooted over to BYC to see what Rob was up to this year.  He comes up with some great AF jokes.  He got me bad the first year or two, and I felt a little betrayed.  But now I just watch the hilarity on April 1 at BYC.

I fell for it!

As soon as I read the little add on the top of the BYC homepage I thought, "What?!  Oh, its April Fools Day".  I never believe anything posted on the internet on April 1st.  :caf:barnie:lau

Thank you both! I think thats a big part of why it got me w4w. Plus the fact that it was sooo well written and scientific sounding that it really sounded possible!!!! I actually Googled to see if there was a news story or press release and found nothing of course and thought it was weird bit figured it hadn't been released yet LOL I wonder if it would eventually be possible????

This is almost as bad as the time in high school when my friend told me the cafeteria ceiling was red and I actually looked up....... they never let that one go lol.pnglau.gif
I think everyone of us has fallen for a joke at some point. I know I have. As a matter of fact I may be fallen for one right now on another thread lol.

No no.  These are real chickens!  Honest!

The one that really got me was

Do you remember the pic of the hen wearing a tin foil hat?:lau

I was so fooled that I tried to find the article several months later when I wanted to hatch some eggs.

I thought it was serious when I first read it, then a few hours later I had been thinking that the lack of details was weird, as the company would usually be the first thing mentioned, then I realized it was the end of March and it might be April 1 in America at the time it was posted.
