    There is a bewildering list of acronyms and abbreviations doing the rounds here on BYC and I just wanted to post a reminder, to especially our newer members that we have a list of abbreviations here:



    For everyone else, if you see any missing abbreviations for newer terms/breeds/etc that is not on the list, please send me a PM and I'll update it.

    TIA!
