    Dear Husband or Dear Wife. Of course, the "D" could stand for something else if you are not happy with your spouse. [​IMG]

    When I first joined BYC it took me awhile to figure out the 'D' part. I was horrified at first, then I asked mom and she explained. [​IMG]

    I thought it was the initials of the poster's relative at first. It took me ages looking at the context trying to figure out if this 'DH' was an aunt, a cousin, a brother, a child... [​IMG]

    Thanks for the insight- now to figure out all those chicken breeds, some I know - some I dont.
    RIR, EE, BA, etc.
    Then there are the turkeys, peas, ducks, etc!
