    Multiple posts over in chicken Behaviors and Egglaying entitled why do some of my hens see the egg song as a warning?

    Is this perhaps a virus of some sort? It occurred 6 times in a short time from 2:00 pm to 2:01 pm. Thanks Nancy
    I also got some red lettering when I tried to open....I'm trying to recreate this now. Will update if I can. Thanks again.

    Nope, not a virus. We're having some server problems and are working with our server team (on staff 24/7) to get it resolved. Things are looking a bit better now, but we'll stay on it just in case!

    If you see duplicate posts / topics please report them and we'll remove them.

    I doubleposted too. I think the site was down (or super slow) for a bit. I didn't think my post posted, so I posted again and then saw it there twice (first time that has ever happened for me.

    Yes, definitely server problems. It's been creeping back up and we pound it's head again, but it is a persistent bug and we're trying to squish it.

    We'll keep at it. Thanks for your patience as we work through these issues!

    Unfortunately when the server is slow, peeps hit the "submit" button over and over which can cause duplicates. Please click the "report" link on the dups and we'll remove them.

    Thanks for your patience as we work through these issues!

    Sorry, things are still bumpy, but we repaired all the server database tables (over 15 GB of data) and things are hopefully getting better.
