    Hi, Everyone:

    I love chickens -- in fact anything feathered. I have about 25 or so and two cochin roosters -- Julio and Fred the second! My "girls" are RIRs, BRs, silkies, cochins, etc. I have five mixed chicks -- silkies plus whichever cochin roo did the deed. Am awaiting the arrival of new chicks from McMurray...any day now.

    But I need your help -- we need a glossary of terms for us new members -- DH (dear hubby??), DD(?), etc.

    What is sex linked?

    I also am a foster for the Austin German Shepherd Rescue. At the moment, I have three of my own dogs -- a GS, a doxie and a Bernese mix. I also have a quarter horse along with parakeets and one cockatiel.

    I recently became a grandmother for the first time and I can't believe how enamored I am of my grandson....
