    I suggest starting with a search, like the one HERE

    Then either come back here with more detailed questions or reply to one of those threads.

    Best of luck!

    it is april fools joke- if you type in eg (spelled wrong so it won't change to rooster), the BYC forum joke changes it to rooster. Stupid to do this in the emergency forum, but oh well. So some told you that your hen was eg bound, not rooster bound...

    So every time you type in eg (spelled wrong to avoid the joke), it will be changed to rooster? What about the eg recipies etc? Is it only in certain topics? At tleast this expains why some of these crazy chicken people keep referring their to their egs as roosters!
    Are there any other jokes that I should be aware of?
