Now I don't like having to be the bearer of bad news, but I have been seeing some threads that are rude and disrespectful. I'm not with backyard chickens or working for them or anything, but I joined this site to have a good time and get helpful chicken facts from other chicken lovers like me. I love reading all sorts of things, from someone asking for feeder advice, to someone mourning over a lost birdie. But I have been reading some threads that got so mean and rude and unpleasant, that they had to be ended by this site or whoever!!!! Now, for all I know, this site is meant to have people giving advice, mourning a loss, trying to figure out a problem, or just talking about the fun of having chickens!!!! We don't need to be mean and rude and put people down to offer our advice. Yes we may be veeeery mad that that car hit his chicken, or that that dern critter broke into her coop and had a feast, or that that guest was mean to the birdies, and I feel the same as all of you, but we must remember to be kind to everyone and not get to riled up!!! I love this site and I want everyone to have fun and feel welcome!!! If you don't want to be nice, thats ok I'm not trying to be bossy, but please don't make anyone feel like they're being put down on here!!!! I love BYC and I just want us all to have fun and get along!!!!
