The first day we had chickens, I came here for information, and I learned everything I needed to know. I still continue to learn to this day. But something happened that doesn't happen with other forums. I made friends. Real and lasting friends, though I have never met most of them, they never fail to offer a kind word, a good laugh, offer to wipe my tears, let me help, help me in return and share their lives. I noticed this through Facebook. 95% of my friends there are from BYC. I have had some really incredible conversations with those members, and I never would have come in contact with any of them if it hadn't been for BYC. Several of the moderators here are my friends there and they are also my FRIENDS. I love every single one of you folks. Today has been a very hard day for me, and that friendship has come through. Thank you.
