Break out the sparkling cider!! We just went past 8,000 members. This was a personally important milestone for me because the original BYC forum had about 8,000 members when I created the new forum. I was very interested in how long it would take to get to this point. Another interested bit of info: It took us less than 1 month to add the last 1,000 members. Here's how I feel when I think about 1,000 people signing up in one month: Thanks to every member of the forum and the great BYC staff members (past and present) for making BYC the best chicken community in the world!!!
