    Hey everyone! I was wondering if there is somewhere I could find out the meaning to all of this chicken lingo. I belong to a horse forum and we use BO (barn owner), BM (barn manager), RH (ranch hand), TO (turn out), etc etc, but I'm trying to figure out what these things mean in the chicken world.

    Is there a page with a list?

    Thanks!
