Any alternatives?

It is possible...
But sometimes the Fish is wrong (make a mistake).
And then I guess what it is mean. I translate (in my mind) this Russin text into English.

P.S. I feel that I begin to remember English :roll: Every next day it is easy.

No Cyrillic keyboard, but the correct encodings. The Bable Fish website uses Unicode (UTF-8 ) which should be supported by your browser.

Hope that helps.

Перевод с помощью http://www.babelfish.altavista.com/tr

Tiene dinero de juevos, gallina de casa? => It has money of juevos, hen of house? => Оно имеет деньг juevos, курицу дома?

That's really close! It's not correct Spanish or even a Spanish saying; it's poor English slang translated to Spanish...

"Got any egg money, home chicken?"

?
Je ne comprends pas votre question. Il me fait le tête et je ne sais même pas pourquoi. J’ai soudainement un blanc.
Pour résoudre votre problème, je vous demande d’écrire en anglais, en allemand, en italien ou en francais et sans expressions idiomatiques, s'il vous plaît.
(P.S.: Excusez-moi, je "parle le français comme une vache espagnole")
PPS: You could - but should not - try to screw the above through the Bable Fish :wink:

Is it specificity phrase? I do not understand perfectly this phrase. What is "egg money" (что за яичные деньги)? It is golden eggs?
