    There's going to be an auction Friday and they have listed whine docs and leghorns. I know what a leghorn is as I have 26 of them. But has anyone heard of whine docs or is this maybe a misprint in the paper?

    Kind of like the auction I saw recently that had fertil bannum eggs from birds they had raised for 20 years. Now if you had a breed you had raised for 20 years, seems to reason that you could at least spell bantam and fertile.

    The auction is going to be in Monroe, Wi. When I read what they had for chickens I questioned my SO. Of course he only knows leghorns and RIR. I myself thought they meant wyandotts, too. If it isn't real cold on Friday I'll have to go and see for myself.

    Thank you for the quick responses, too.

    Kind of like when people say Orphington for Orpington. LOL

    I think you could probably make a great T-short saying. Obviously it would need a picture of a wyandotte whining or wining about something.

    [​IMG] Maybe there will be somebody selling Barreled Rocks and Buff Orphingtons too, as I've heard them called too many times.
