I am joining Sheila for her rooster/chicken party. I have a long love affair with these feathered friends and I did a post about that here: roosters. My mom had roosters in her kitchen so I suppose it has been ingrained in me that you need a few in every kitchen.
I even have them in my china cabinet.
Here are some kitchen fellows watching over me as I cook.
They keep watch outside.
And even grace the garden.
