    I have a thumbnail picture in google that I click on and (in the past) it took me straight to BYC. Since Tuesday, May 16th, when I click on the thumbnail, https://www.backyardchickens.com/redirect.php?requestPath=users/subscriptions/index/view/threads comes up in the address bar and all I get is a blank white screen. The only way I can get to BYC is to go through Backyard herds. Or by clicking on an email notification. No I haven't done some of the techie things you suggested because, frankly, I don't know how to do those things.

    Well Backyard Chickens has recently (in simple terms) updated their website over the past few days. So old links like the one you provided wont work anymore. If you are using Google or Google Chrome you can simple go to the BYC home page, https://www.backyardchickens.com/
    And follow these steps.
    1) Click this provided link, it should take you to the homepage of backyard chickens.
    2) Once on the homepage look to the top right of your screen under the minimize option, there is what looks like a little star, click it.
    3) Under "folder," select, "bookmarks bar"
    4) Click Done
    If you've completed these steps correctly once you open a new tab you should be able to see a beautiful little picture of the BYC logo up near the top left of your screen, underneath the search bar. Simply click it once and it will take you straight to BYC!

    If this didn't work for you refer to this link
