    Whenever I needed help I looked to Backyard Chickens online, thank you so much. I have some questions and would like to start a discussion. How do I do this?

    First, [​IMG]

    By "discussion," do you mean thread? On threads, other BYC members can review your question and make replies.

    To begin your own thread, first simply find the appropriate forum section. For example, if you are wondering about something feed related, you would want to post in the "Feeding and Watering your Flock" part of the forums.

    Once you're at the correct forum section, look near the top of the web page. You should see a small blue bar that says "Start a new thread." Click on that button, and it should take you to a text editor. Type in your question, and then click the submit button down in the lower right. That should allow you to successfully start a thread.

    Good luck! [​IMG]
