    Uh, this is Backyardchickens, so I would expect loads of chicken pictures to show up, including your own.

    They aren't just from BYC. Pictures from threads you comment on are also there. So are other places like blogs.

    Scary.

    I was, for fun, doing a google image search for a picture of an "imp sitting on eggs". Found a picture of my cat. Didn't bother me, but wonder what other people will think.

    Course I might be the only person to ever google that.

    I found mine too... Search for 'BirdNut' and you'll get pics of my Silkie. I think it's time I start using watermarks, and I would advise the same for you.

    And as for filtering the search to prevent this from happening again, I'm afraid you can't.
