    Although BYC's content and activities is predominantly chicken related, we have noticed an increase in interest and activity in our Other BackYard Poultry section. Following the success of the new Other Fowl Learning Center section, we have decided to give the other poultry types (Ducks, Geese, Turkeys, Quail, Emus, etc) their own Pic of the Week (POW)!

    Following the Chicken POW process, every week, we'll be choosing a pic from our member's "My Chickens" pages to be featured as a Picture Of The Week (POW) on the homepage of the site.

    To a create a page do the following… Look for and open the "Learning Center" tab in the brown header. Once you're in, look for "My Chickens":

    [​IMG]


    Click on that and look on the left of your screen for "Add a Chicken Page"


    [​IMG]

    Click on that and you will get a template where you can put in your page's title, put your pics and description or any info you'd like to add about your birds in the contents section. When you're done, scroll down and look on the right side of your screen for "Save"


    In the page we want you to post a few pics of your fowl and then some information about them, for example:

    • Breeds
    • Ages
    • Where you got them
    • Favorite treats, funny stories, their personalities, what you love most about them, etc.


    Any questions, comments or feedback, please reply to this thread. We will start the new POW as soon as possible and have scheduled it for Saturdays.

    A friend and I just thought about this last night, and I find it funny that you had actually been working on it behind the scenes! [​IMG] I look forward to seeing a variety of birds on the homepage of BYC.

    Many thanks again to Sumi and @Nifty-Chicken and whoever else is doing this! I've never done a chicken POW, so do we post our page here?
