    I have been looking at this thing since April at Walmart. They were selling it for $29.95. I figuared that I would wait to see if it would go down. In May it went to $19.95. So I still waited. I finally got one last week for $15.00. There was only a handful left. I guess I got it at the right time. He's made out of painted aluminum and is lifesize.

    Cute! Do your hens even notice him standing guard? Or, are they just waiting for him to make his move...

    I did the same thing! Figured they had to go on sale sooner or later and finally snagged mine for $15. They had a lot of them left though so maybe they will go down again and I'll grab another!

    [​IMG] I got one of these sitting on my nightstand. I got it from DH in May when I was recovering from ectopic surgery. (you know I'm an addict when I get this guy instead of flowers [​IMG] ) They're very pretty "boys"!
