    I cant be the only one that noticed how close BYC is to 5000. I am wondering when it started? I think its alot of chicken people and i never would have realized that this was such a popular pet [​IMG]

    I'll bet it gets more popular as time goes by! I'm the only one in my neighborhood who has chickens. I'm wondering when that will change, with other people getting chickens, I mean. [​IMG]

    Do you know when it started? That pretty amazing to have such high numbers in what i think to be a very short time.

    BYC the web site was established in 1999

    The current version of the message board was born Dec 26, 2006 since that is Nifty Chicken's registration date. I think the official launch of the message board was early Jan. 2007. That's when I signed up, although I have been a member at the old BYC site since 2003.​
