I've owned BYC for 18 months now and I've gotten use to a bit of seasonality. You know, people get chicks during the spring so you expect a bit of a spike during March and April and then some tapering off at the end of May. Well, we're a week into June and we're still adding about 50 people EVERY DAY to our BYC family! Don't get me wrong, I love it. If it were up to me everyone would have at least 3 hens in their backyards (I try to talk everyone I know into getting chickens). But that said, I mean, come on... where are all these chicken people coming from? A huge thanks to the great BYC community and wonderful BYC moderators that make this the best chicken forum (heck, I'll say best FORUM) on the internet. oh, BTW, you people are REALLY chatty too! We're adding 3,100 new posts every DAY! That is more than a post every 30 seconds of every day!
