Greetings for Costa Rica, I have been so busy that I didn't see this till now so here I am. I have my laying hens, Ponedoras, producing an egg a day for a couple of months. We just added the two Silkies (roo & hen) and two Jardineros (roo & hen). The two roosters are still deciding who is cock of the walk . I've wanted the Silkies for some time but they are too expensive here till I met Juan's sister-in-law, she sold me a pair for $10.00, others wanted up to $60.00 for a pair. I'm hoping the Silkie hen will be a good brood hen . The little black Jardinero wants to sit already. I may put an egg under her just to see what happens. We live in the Central Valley in a village called Los Angeles Sur (South LA for a joke ) just north of San Ramon de Alajuela. We have been here just a little over two years and are loving our retirement here .
