    Quote:Chat allowed you to go in and ask questions and receive answers within seconds (or a minute or so..) But a large part, was every time I went into the chat it was a chat. Hardly poultry based, which I guess could cause the poultry forum to become duller unless you hang out in the games/random rambling.

    I still think the forum is useful. I just liked to be able to socialize with others without starting a new forum.

    You can still chat on facebook and AIM. I do most of my chatting with people on Facebook and before that I used AIM and it was very easy. It was actually nicer because I could pick and choose who I wanted to chat with. If I didn't care to talk to someone I would just remove them from my list! Never used the chat function much on this BYC. It was useful when I first started in poultry years ago on the old site but now I find the forum just as useful.

    I liked the chat. I met more than one local chickener and exchanged birds.
