Hey everyone! I thought I'd start a new thread before we sent out the newsletter. It was mentioned in the Bumper Sticker thread that it would be fun to learn where all the members / visitors are coming from. Please reply to this thread and add how you first discovered BYC. Was it through a search engine? If so, which one? What did you search for? Was it from a friend who just loves hanging out over here? Maybe from another website? Hopefully within the next few weeks we'll get some posts that say, "I saw the website on a bumper sticker!" I'll start: When: 12/11/04 How: Google Searches Details: It was about 2.5 years ago when a friend of mine hatched baby chicks and wanted to give 5 to my wife and I. "OhMyGosh... I need to learn about chickens!!!" was my first thought. I began my journey for chicken knowledge searching Google for "raising chickens" and "chicken coops" etc. I found a lot of helpful sites but the one that kept coming up in the searches was www.BackYardChickens.com. When I noticed I had bookmarked about 10 pages of the site and printed everything in the "Learning Center" I knew I was hooked!
