    This is funny. I always read it as Dang Husband. I probably always will, since that's the first thing that comes to mind. Now I know people like their husbands more than I thought around here. LOL

    I always refer to my dh as my "devoted husband". Any man who puts up with me and 5 daughters is devoted:)

    Thank you for asking!! Being new to BYC I wondered about it too. [​IMG] I came to the conclusion it must stand for Dear Husband, but other words came to mind: dumb husband, darn husband because it didn't seem realistic that all the female members of BYC had such terrific husbands? But maybe it takes a special type of guy to raise chickens [​IMG]
    Perhaps BYC should have a lingo section for newbies that would help us catch on quicker to some of the terms used. I had to look up "pullet" because I didn't know what that was (a chicken less than one year old). I still have so much to learn [​IMG]
