    I was told on another Forum that ALL Forums slow down this time of year.

    This is what was said.


    All the forums slow down at this time of year - holidays, no breeding issues, no chicks. There's not much happening with the birds right now, so we all just get to take a breath and plan for spring!

    So if ALL Forums slow down I was just wondering why this Forum don't slow down??? Seems like there are a lot of folks on here always needing help or needing know something fast or just want to chat and someone on here is always willing to HELP, I mean I have chicks almost year round may not be peachicks.

    Cause we love our Peas and there just are not many forums to share them with like the chickens and other fowl forums out there.

    Actually, I have seen some forums pick up this time of year. Because folks aren't outside tending critters, gardening, whatever and have more time (and inclination) to stay inside.

    BYC Has the largest population of people. There are alot of friends on this site and social games. Also health problems in chickens can happen at any time of year. Not to mention our photo contests and we have learning areas for certain breeds. These sections of the site are active year round

    I like to watch and talk about my peafowl year round. Even when it is not breeding season people can talk about their young peacock growing his first train and show pictures, ask about if there birds will be alright in the cold, ask questions of how to prepair for the upcomming breeding season, ect.

    I hope the forum picks up!

    This is one of the more active forums I am a member of -- I think it is because there are so many members-- definitely more peacock people here. I check in on the UPA forum but do not see much activity there.

    The other forums I belong to, some are more active than others, the "plant" (epiphyllum) forum is slow because for most of us, our plants are in hibernation for the winter, the "live animal" forums (cocker spaniels) are at the same level of activity as always throughout the year -- we always have shows, rescue, family stories, etc to share. A lot of us on the Cocker Spaniel forums know each other personally so we tend to stay in touch more often than other groups, I think.

    I'm glad this is an active forum & try to give some input every day & keep it that way!
