You might have a better response on the Breeds discussion but here are a few that I have seen:

BO – Buff Orpington
EE – Easter Egger
RIR – Rhode Island Red
BR or BPR – Barred (Plymouth) Rock
GLW – Golden Laced Wyandote
SLW – Silver Laced Wyandote
BLRW – Blue Laced Red Wyandote
NH - New Hampshire
GSL – Gold Sex Link
RSL – Red Sex Link
BSL – Black Sex Link
OEG – Old English Game
CX - Cornish Cross

I'll try to edit as I think of others.

A few others that I see being tossed around:

SF: Salmon Faverolles (or sometimes Small Fowl for bantam breeds)
BA: Black Australorp
(F)BCM: (French) Black Copper Marans
SS: Speckled Sussex
LF: Large Fowl (for full-sized chickens)
