    I see lots of abbreviations on the forum, and I have no clue what they mean. For instance, EE. I feel preety silly. I dont know what ANY of the abbreviations used mean. "Lay" it on me guys and gals! (haha no pun intended) Tell me what all the abbreviations mean, Id really appreciate it!

    EE = Easter Egger
    BR = Barred Rock
    RIR = Rhode Island Red
    SLW = Silver Laced Wyandotte

    etc....

    It takes a while but hang around and you'll learn a lot. I just had to ask what LF meant! (Large Fowl)
    Don't feel silly asking, it's how we all learn.

    EE is easter egger. I'm not any good at the chicken lingo either, so don't worry none [​IMG]
    Umm SLW is silver laced wyandotte I think. OP is original poster. You know I never learned what OBO is, I see everywhere in the for sale listings for animals in the PennySaver.
    Orange Built Oxen comes to my mind o_O

    Quote:Nope, it refers to mutt/mongrel chickens that lay colored eggs (from pinkish to blue to green) and are often wrongly advertised as Araucanas or Ameraucanas.
