    The Official "BYC Trivia Challenge" will be on Saturday, November 3, 2012, at 9:30PM EST / 6:30PM PST! (Tonight!)

    This BYC contest is brought to you by our sponsors. Please visit them and thank them for their support of BYC: https://www.backyardchickens.com/sponsors

    1st Place: 6 Month Golden Feather Membership (for you or a friend)

    This contest will send you on a hunt to various parts of BYC and our sister sites!


    A few tips and rules:



    1. Open 2 or 3 windows (or use tabbed browsing if you have it). Keep one window open to the contest and use the other windows to search for your answers. The questions will all be posted right here in post #1. (You will be asked to post links, also known as URLs, as answers to some questions).
    2. Don't post pictures or custom smilies, and only one or two regular smilies if you really must (we do not want to slow anyone down).
    3. Please number your answers so we can more easily find them and tally the score.
    4. One point for the correct answer - that's it.
    5. Don't edit your post. Once you've answered that's it, no more answers. If you change your mind you can post again. Edited posts will not count.
    6. One question will be posted at a time with approximately three minutes in between each posted question. Whoever answers first with the correct answer will win the point. Whoever wins the most points WINS the prize!! (Only one Trivia Challenge winner per member, so if you've won a BYC Trivia Challenge in the past please let others have a go.)
    7. Have FUN.... and good luck!

    To check your time zone: map , converter

    Please remember to number your answers!

    The sister sites are BackYardHerds.com, TheEasyGarden.com, and SufficientSelf.com.

    I think Utah is Pacific time, so it would be 6:30 PM.

    Oh yay, thanks for putting this up, staff! :D
    I've actually managed to get into the city early today, by some freak of nature. :lol: It's only in a few hours' time, this is very exciting!!

    ETA: I just googled this. It's apparently 6pm Pacific time right now. So not in a few hours. In half an hour.

    ...Thank heavens I got here early. :lau
