    BTW, it is pretty good validation of the trend toward raising backyard chickens when stories like this pop up in magazines like this. [​IMG]

    Funny is that the article uses the BYC forum membership to represent the total number of peeps that own chickens in America. Two problems:

    1) While super huge, the BYC community is just a tiny percentage of peeps that own chickens (we really should do something about that)
    2) We're way over 60k members (that was soooooo 8 months ago)

    I'm surprised it is still there too. Usually they rotate out those links and images pretty quickly. It must have a high click through rate. [​IMG]
