    I kept stumbling onto this site whenever I Google searched anything, so I finally gave up and registered. [​IMG]

    Quote:that is how I found it too last year....and I hung around lurking in the background, learning and reading away up until not too long ago. I love this site and the people in too, there are a lot of very nice, experienced, helpful, open minded, and funny members here....

    A friend became a member and told me about it. Of course, I didn't bother to check into it because I figured it was probably lame...[​IMG] Now I realize I was the lame one!! [​IMG]
    I'm on it all the time and she barely goes on now. [​IMG]

    I found it actually because something bad happened. My pullet was attacked by a dog, so I was researching treatments and information and BYC came up!

    My Coop
    I had ordered chicks from McMurray and knew I only had a couple of months to figure out how to take care of them. I found another site (no longer there) that had free plans for chicken coops. I used one of those. Then I wondered about what else I should put in the coop, did a search and up popped BYC.

    I got the chicks on April 25th, 2008 and officially joined on May 14th, 2008. The rest is as they say, "History"
    ... that continues to get deleted. [​IMG]
