    I had so doggone much trouble with the app that I dumped it and went the old fashioned way. I used my iPhone's search engine, and went to BYC. Logged in, then use the little piece of paper looking icon to give me some options, one of which was "add to homescreen". Did that, then when it opened I switched it to Desktop mode. Did the same thing on my iPad. So when I want to come here on my phone or iPad I just find the little BYC chicken and tap it. Now BYC looks pretty much like it does on my computer, I can add photos, quote, and all that fun stuff. It's just very, very tiny.

    I am on an Android galaxy S4 so maybe the issue is with i phones? Seemed to work good.

    thank you RE: the bird. She is two and when we hatched her, she was the only Cochin and my son named her Favorite. She is quite friendly and I use her for demonstrations with small kids.
    Thank you RE. the bird. Like the patriotic photos above.

    By the way, just a side note, today my desktop has the multi-quote and all my tool bar. I have no idea why it dissappers sometimes. This is a new issue in the last week or so.

    Also, candling tonight as I have something going on tomorrow night that will keep me busy. Got a good look at all 12 eggs yesterday as broody mama was off nest for her crazy broody run. Fingers crossed for lots of little wigglers tonight! [​IMG]

    He seems to be particular about the types of grasses he eats lol so i think hes the same :) he also eats on walks though. There's a spot near the end of our driveway wherehe always stops and "grazes" and there used to be a spot when we walked the cranberry bogs but they dredged a new channel lol so not necessarily only decorative/ornamental grasses but not just any grass either. Though sometimes he does graze in the middle of the yard. He's very weird lol he's also part Great Pyrenees though so i always wondered if he wasnt finding nutrition in the grasses out of some instinct to stay alive lol cause sometimes he catches animals too


    I personally find the desktop version on mobile to be very clunky and hard to use. You should try mobile sometime :)

    What are these? Feed store had 3 cages, the top ones had the yellow/cream on chest and the bottom ones didnt. Also there were like 2 black ones in the third cage on the way bottom. Didn't get picks, so dark. But didn't look like barred rock or Australorp? I thought these were all EEs but then the middle cage some are brown and some look silver/grey? So I'm wondering if they are Wyandottes? They were supposed to get SLW and GLW in bit I forget when. They weren't labeled or else I wouldn't be asking. Forgot to ask an employee but oh well. This is Morrisons, a local store under Agway, not a TSC or anything. But yeah. Thoughts?
