    When I put backyardchickens.com in the address window, as I have done for months, I get re-directed to a strange looking channelawardscenter site. Looks suspicious to me. I can get into BYC through a yahoo search but not directly.

    I don't want to take a survey or be registered to win an ipad or whatever.

    What is up?

    That's very odd! What are the exact steps you are going through? What browser / version are you on? Have you tried another browser?

    We're definitely not running any "take a survey win and iPad" type of things.

    My guess is that it may just be your computer or system.

    Anybody else seeing this?

    Oh, and if you could take a screenshot that would be GREAT!

    I am using IE, not sure of the version. I think I have it figured out. I had put in the address bar backyardchicken.com (forgot the s). The survey is probably a gift from bing?

    BYC is working fine now that I use the right URL

    Thanks for the reply
