    People tend to abbreviate a lot of stuff. I don't understand what they mean. I hope i am not the only one. Like WTB, BBSS and FS and there is a lot more. All i am saying is that it's terrible to be reading something and not to understand it.

    WTB = Want to Buy
    FS = For Sale

    Sorry I don't know what the BBSS is.

    Some Abbreviate BLRW for Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    RIR = Rhode Island Red
    BO = Buff Orpington
    BBS is usually Blue/Black/Splash

    That is about all I can think of.

    Go to the learning center (link at the very top of the page) and look through the FAQ. A abbreviation and dictionary is there.

    THANKS. I know about the chickens it's the other stuff i didn't understand.I knew a lot of it was simple but my brain is awful small in this large computer world. In other words i am about as sharp as a bowling ball on this computer.

    Oh yes the PC = Purple Chicken is the foremost important one as is
    MP = MissPrissy SH = Speckledhen


    [​IMG] PC you crack me up [​IMG]

    There are also abbreviations for most of the breeds too. If you get stumped on one just ask...someone will let you know what it means.
