  1. All of your hens look as if they are very busy laying eggs in their coops Gina. Do you manage to get through all of the eggs yourselves or do you sell/give some away.

    1. Dear Rosemary, Seldom do we see all nests occupied. Another group of hens were waiting in line. We gather a lot of eggs in the Spring. We never sell our eggs but share them with neighbors and friends. We often have the favor returned. The bartering system is alive and well in this small community. ox, Gina

    1. Dear Mark, of course, you would throw Latin at me. It's been too long since I sat behind a school desk. But I do like to have "cara" follow my name. Yes, our chickens are very diverse and I am delighted that you enjoyed their assembly. Optima vota, Gina

    2. Just for the record, I want to acknowledge that I was never a Latin student, and I know my construction and words weren't quite right. But seeing your diverse roster is a delightful picture.

    3. You had me fooled. It took me a while to figure out which language you were speaking. Later on in the day our chickens had a free range day while I was working in the garden. They took dust baths and my dog Charlie and I had a heck of a time getting them back where they belong.

    1. Dear Val, I'm glad to hear that bartering is still practriced in your area of Portugal. It makes for happy neighbors. Yes our hens look fat and happy when they are all puffed up trying to intimidate those which are standing by to lay the next eggs.
      Muitos beijos, feliz semana. ox, Gina

    1. Hello Mary, Our chickens usually fight over certain nests that are, for some reason only chickens know, their favorites. Thank you for your visit. I so appreciate it. ox, Gina
