    I would like to first remind you all that BYC Chat has all the same rules as this forums. Sometimes the rules may be more strictly enforced. If you need to report a problem in chat just choose any post on the forums or report link above chat to state your problem. Also you can contact the moderators on at that time.

    Some things to beware of:
    1: No cap locks
    2: Spamming
    3: Fighting
    4: Foul Language or using anything to get past the filter

    Here is a direct link to BYC Chat:

    Ok so for any of you new Chat people or experienced chat people are there any other things that should be added?
  5. I'd suggest a little better indication of how to activate the private messages as well as how to use the ignore button.
    You'll find both of them under the same tab.

    well, I'd like to know how to get out of chat. I saw that folks were leaving the room and when I clicked log out it just gave me an option to log in

    How do you know when your hens laying days are over? I'm getting some odd looking things in my eggs. Is ther a 90 days window? I heard that there was.

    That was Joann's very first post so [​IMG] & [​IMG]

    How old are your hens?
    What Breeds?
    What "odd looking" things are you seeing?

    I keep this bookmarked cause it really does address a lot of "issues"


    you may want to start your own thread in the "Chickens Behavior & Egg-laying" if you want more thoughts.....

    2x ETA - to add bookmarked page - D'uh!
