    My coop is nearing completion. It is 10' long and 6' wide with with a 7' gable roof. The roof is dark green metal and I am having trouble trying to decide which weathervane to select for it.

    Actually, my 3 week old Marans chicks are growing so fast they sort of look like baby dragons right now: [​IMG]

    Personally I love the dragon just because it's different and less predictable. I'd love to know where you found it :)

    I like the rooster because it's traditional & still funky.

    Quote:Hello-
    they are both at a lot of the on-line weathervane sites. If you google Cottage Dragon Weathervane or Cottage Rooster weathervane, all the sites that sell them will come up.
    My local feed store can order it for me, so I am going to purchase through them- the manufacturer is called Good Directions, Inc.

    This site looks like it has some good prices on them:

    they're both great, and I'm sure either will look really nice. that being said, I'm an Anne McCaffrey fan, and I love her stories about the Dragonriders of Pern. (The trilogy was SO fantastic!). If I HAD to choose, I think I'd go with..... [​IMG]
