Normally I don't post this kind of thing. But after visiting & being a member of numerous chook boards after the last 8 years, here is what I think.... 1) BYC has the largest knowledge base. 2) Rules are clear & defined. 3) The owner(Nifty/Rob) clearly wants to make chicken s & their care his #1 priority 4) The mods are a dedicated bunch (Even that duck lover one) 5) I'm tired of the bashing of BYC that goes on at other sites. They are a jealous bunch of wanna bee's 6) This is the only site that REALLY allows an individual to express themselves (within the guidlines) That's it in a nut shell.
