The Age Old Dilemma

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Question no more, for I have it all figured out.
The answer is neither. No chicken. No egg. 
What came first then, you ask?
The coop, I say. 
The coop.
And I'm still waiting for mine.

The Portuguese rooster, or "Galo de Barcelos," as is commonly known among the Portuguese people, is a symbol of honesty, integrity, trust and honor and also recognized as an unofficial symbol of the country.

Don't forget, Harvest Week begins tomorrow!

Do it my way...get the chicks first (having a teary-eyed girl holding, then naming, the littlest chick in the bunch helped a lot!)then the coop HAS to come! They outgrow boxes and troughs faster than you'd think, and the priority of the coop shoots to the top of the to-do list! Keep us posted! -Mary

Was so cool to see this rooster in your photos today, Andrea. I received a postcard from Portugal last week with this very Rooster on it! I love it -- so colorful and thanks for sharing at SS 52 this week. :)
