    I wanted to start a list of abbreviations for the difference kinds of chickens there are. If you know of any more could you copy this list, post a new reply and place it in.
    This may help some of us so when we see SSH, we will know it means Silver Spangeld Hamburg.

    Thanks for your help. [​IMG]

    I noticed the OEG, but I didn't notice an OEGB abrev.-Old English Game Bantam [​IMG]

    Also there are color abreviations as well, like BTW, BTB, and so on. Not sure of others, but I would imagine there are more!

    I want to know the abbreviation for Leghorns. Is it the color plus LH, such as WLH? I just always end up having to type it out.
