Hey everyone. I was going to discuss this with the BYC staff but then figured we've got 28,000 really smart and resourceful people here in our family that may want to participate in brainstorming and implementing some ideas. As we've seen there is a really big growth in the trend towards raising backyard chickens. Hundreds of news stories (TV, Radio, Newspaper, Online) have run stories about our great hobby and some have even mentioned BYC. I don't think I'm out on a limb by saying there are probably thousands of more journalists that would love to run with a story about raising chickens and even put a plug in for BYC. So, let's try to pull together our super resourceful and ingenious community member resources to figure out: 1) How do we get word out to all these journalists that want to write about us but that just don't know it yet? 2) Would you be willing to call your local paper / editor and tell them about the great story waiting to be written? 3) Would you be interested in being interviewed by your local paper? What do y'all think? Help validate that it was a good idea to post this to the community by brainstorming some ideas!
