    Good evening. Our county extension officer has asked me to be the parent volunteer leading up our county 4-H poultry project this year. Our first meeting will be on 2/26/13 and most of the 38 families are brand new to chickens. I want to set up a profile page or something similar through BYC to be the information center for the project. What is my best path forward?

    Thanks,
    Justin Davis

    It actually might work better to do it as a Facebook page.

    Go to Facebook, and in the search field enter the words "4H Chickens". I just did that and found pages for seven different 4H chicken groups. Look at their pages for ideas, see if you think any of those ideas will work for you. You could also search for "raising chickens", "community chicken" , "urban chickens" or other such terms, to find many more such community based group Facebook pages.

    Remember, plagerism is the highest form of flattery. [​IMG] So, if you see a page design or concept you like, use it as an inspiration.

    You can create a BYC page / article in the Member Pages section of the site and then link to that from your forum signature.

    From there people can comment on that page, and if you want more discussion you can create a thread in the forum.
