    kinda like an 'older" one...not the cheap plastic they have now w/the cutesy designs...

    I am having a hard time finding one at a decent price...

    I saw some on Amazon or eBay for between $28.00 to $750.00. You are probably leaning toward the $750 one right?

    I have been looking too. I see ones with horses all the time on CL, but not any roosters. I've been contemplating if I could make one somehow out of hammered copper? On the same note though, I did score some nice cast iron rooster door stops that are goin to look great on my coup. I make it a habit of searching most every morning for the the word "chicken" on CL. Never know what you might find.

    So funny you posted this! I was just planning my new coop. It's going to be next to my horse barn so I'm thinking of making it a smaller scale replica with a cupola and a weathervane... Our horse barn has a horse weathervane so I want to do a chicken one on the coop [​IMG] I haven't started looking to much yet but if I find a good source I'll add it to the list!

    I got one from Southerlands (I think it's local, kinda like Lowes or something though) for about $30 in the outdoor/garden type section, it was near the outdoor thermometers and things of that nature. It's black, metal, and has a rooster on it.
