    Recently i posted on the forum in response to a question and to my surprise someone replied with a " so I guess I'll be the only one with over 100 posts to reply" message. Since I grew up on a farm and have been around chickens and numerous other types of birds for as long as I can remember I want to remind everyone that posting (or your number of posts) on this site does not make you an "expert".

    I grew up with chickens and it still means nothing.

    Everyone had less than 100 posts at some point. You're right posts don't equal experience. [​IMG]

    Just remember to take ANYTHING you see on the internet with a grain of salt.

    Any fool can get on line now a days.

    I joined because I grew up with chickens and I found I needed to learn a lot more than I knew.
