    BO= buff orphington
    EE= Easter egger
    Silkie= refers to or is short for another breed

    You might also see:
    BCM= black copper Maran
    RSL= red sex link
    RR= rhode island red

    Etc etc...you'll see all sorts of abbreviations for various breeds of chickens on this forum...you'll get used to it and soon will just read it in context...hope this helps. [​IMG]

    You will also see BR: Barred Rock,JG: Jersey Giant and countless others. Given all the info on this site there has to be a abbreveation chart somewhere.
