He’s a real cutie Elaine. Hope he doesn’t get you up to early in the morning!

WOW he is a loud and proud example of a Rooster isn’t he now. I love the Country, Early Americana works, and he sure resembles that from a foot or two.

Nice work.

Thanks for posting.

I’ve enjoyed reading all of these great comments … so many thanks to you all!

Chances are he wouldn’t weather well if I left him out all year, but dear ‘Funky’ will be nestled inside the comfort of a warm workshop over the winter months. Hopefully that, and end-of-summer maintenance will extend his life!

Your rooster weathervane is so cute, we might just have to turn our neighbor’s noisy rooster into one . . . if I can just shoot the arrows perfectly perpendicular!

Nice to hear you’re taking him in for the winter. He’s too nice to be outside in the snow.
