    I am new to everything and I was looking around and I see words used that I have no idea of. For example saying a chicken has a good layer I have no idea what that means. I'm sorry if this seems a dumb question but I had to ask. Thanks and if you have any other vocabulary I may be unfamiliar with please share. Thank you

    Don't worry about it. If I don't know the correct term, I make up my own. For instance, I couldn't think of what baby goats were called so I came up with ' goatlets'. I hybridize house plants yet, don't know the correct term for their parts etc. It hasn't stopped me from coming up with some beautiful blossoms.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens- enjoy your flock.

    Welcome! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our BYC community.

    Don't worry about asking questions- we were all new once.[​IMG] I don't know all chicken vocabulary, either (though I've certainly learned a lot from this site especially!). Michael O Shay has given you a good answer to your question.
