    I have to say that I prefer a normal website over facebook - if only because I don't need to have an account or be logged in to see a normal website, as one would with facebook.

    Google makes a very easy, very quick website building tool, which syncs with their picassa software/website. That's where I keep my chicken albums and egg promotional page.

    We actually had a problem with the man who set up our website and have to either find someone else to build us one or do one ourselves and i dont know where to start. Hope to eventually do both! Of course we will still be offering our birds right here to other BYC members. Thank you though for your opinions as that is what we were looking for with this question!

    Nooo! Not facebook! Loads of people don't use it and often for good reasons.
    A nice website on the "real" internet is way better and everyone can access it.

    You may already know this but I think the best solution is to buy a domain name from companies like; a .com costs about $10 a year and the rest are way cheaper. You can host your content elsewhere (perhaps a free location) and set up your domain name to point to it. If you move your content just update where you domain name points. This way you never have to change your URL.

    HTML is straightforward once you've got the hang of it. If you need help building a site, just mail me.
