    Well...I was gonna buy the Platinum membership, but I do not meet any of the qualifications....I guess it is the GF

    This membership costs to help support the BYC site. It is very expensive to maintain a site like this online. If you want the extra perks, pay for it.

    What does the statuses mean? Like "just hatched" up to "flockmaster)
  6. Lisa Wood
    How do we unsubscribe to subscription we lost interest in?
  7. Lisa Wood

    I am sorry-I thought everything was at no cost. I definitely want to get a 6 month GFM membership, so how do I go about it? I had no idea and I also thought I was on the buy, sell, trade forum.....so how do I get there and can I buy now if I pay you? Please show me what to do at [email protected] and I will follow the best I can. I have been pretty sick and these chickens make me happy but I do not mean to cross any rules-I just can't understand some of them or how to do it. Sorry. Let me pay somewhere-just tell me where.
    thank you and I'm trying "to do it right"
