Roosters

Yesterday, BJ asked us for pictures of any roosters we might have. I have a few and thought I would share them! It is a grey, rainy day here so I had to use my flash and the pics aren't as nice as they should be but, oh well, it happens:>) Most of my roosters are on a little wall shelf in the kitchen by the door. On the top is one of my first little poultry figurines and a great sign I picked up at a church sale. I love the sign with the chickens!

Next is another little rooster that I love. I like how the black and white pattern of his feathers looks with the checks on the letter and the toile curtains in the kitchen.
I got this little hen and rooster salt and pepper when I went to Ann Arbor at the consignment shop. Very inexpensive and they are a bit chippy but I think it adds to the charm.

Of course my favorite rooster doesn't get to stay in the house! He is my little Bantam rooster out in the hen house. He does a great job of protecting the hens and he isn't mean like some (now deceased) roosters I have had. He's a sweetie. This was the clearest picture I could get of him because the little dickens never holds still!
I've had a long time love for chickens ever since helping grandma and grandpa on the farm. As a child I used to watch the baby chicks in the chicken coop for hours and gathered the eggs for grandma every night. I've shared a bit of my rooster collection (yes there are more), why don't you share too? Join the fun and visit BJ and send her your rooster pics too.

Hi Kathy, that is the cutest sign and what a neat collection of roosters you have. Your Bantam rooster is gorgeous....does he wake you up in the morning? We used to hear one early in the morning and I loved it. Have a happy day...hugs, Linda

I love your roosters! I sent my rooster photo over to BJ too. I even have a rooster tapestry, but I didn't send that one.

Happy day to you!

I love roosters too! I enjoyed seeing all of yours! I have many roosters myself. One is a super long necked rooster. He is on my blog in my post about redoing my kitchen last summer.
Have a great weekend Kathy!

Your rooster collection is lovely. I love them too, but my favorite is this lovely rooster with his feathers looking like a gigantic bow. Karen

Loved this rooster post! You have such a flare for taking photos. Your bantam rooster is just precious and he stood pretty still I think! I will wait with baited breathe for the "new etsy additions" I know they will be great! Hugs, Jan@daylilylane

Hi Kathy,

LOVE, love, love the K letter, where did you get the wooden letter? I figure I can paint one myself with roses, only using an S or an L.
