    Hello everyone! This is an article about Chicken breed abbreviations. You know, like EE or BR. (Easter Egger, Barred Rock.) I have gotten confused before on what people are talking about when they say stuff like that :) So I am making this, it is editable and all BYC members have access to it,to add new abbreviations! To edit just click (or tap if you are on a phone) on the little Pencil at the end of the article. They will be listed in alphabetical order, and if you have time, please add a fact about the breed.This is not finished yet, so help out and add some chickens! I hope this helps everyone :)
    (Note added by BantyChooks: This article is in rich format, so those editing on a phone are going to have a very hard time. I recommend using a device that supports rich format)
