What do people mean when they say "my fids"?

I'm afraid that's probably a really silly question, but I learned a long time ago that I'd rather look silly for a few seconds in someone's eyes than sit with a burning, nagging question.

I googled it but all I got were results for LOTS of posts where people use the phrase and no explanation of it! Is it an acronym? A type of bird? Please at least tell me it's perfectly normal for a new bird owner to be out of the loop on this.

(ETA: You can imagine I was doubly mortified when a search in the forums did not reveal anyone else asking what this means... o_O)

No, no silly question at all.

FIDS = feathered kids.

Here is a great link with a bunch of acronyms.
Some Common Abbreviations

Re: What do people mean when they say "my fids"?

Ha, I've been groping with "FIDS" too since I joined this forum. I thought I'd eventually see the light but someone's put me out of my misery. Thanks for asking the burning question, Chasy!

Re: What do people mean when they say "my fids"?

I remember posting the same question, a few years back, and feeling the same way as you Chasy. Luckily, most folks don't judge us for not knowing all the answers!

Hehehe....
I had the same question, don't feel bad. Thank you for asking!!!
I had an idea, but didn't know for sure. I spent a lot of time on the orchid forum where orchid growing people call their orchids "chids", so I had a hint.......
I just thought I could live a little longer without knowing for sure.
Thank you Chasy and Wendy!

I also had no clue. Luckily, I came across a thread which explained it.
