Rooster Party

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.


On pillows.

Here are some kitchen fellows watching over me as I cook.


They keep watch outside.


And even grace the garden.

  5. I guess I should have joined the party too. I have always collected the non living version! I have my Grandma's rooster pottery dishes, and many roo's in my home. And now, the live version as well.
    Cockadoodledoo!!!

  12. Now, when the hens come home to roost, your roosters will be ecstatic!


    WELCOME, RED FRIENDS!

    Come in, my dear friends, and be seated, please—
    Oh, all of you reds are such a big tease!
    Scarlet, you creep over cheeks in a blush;
    Crimson, you’re always in such a big rush!
    Cherry, you’re tasty and pleasant to see;
    Carmine, you utterly satisfy me!
    So come in, my friends, and be seated, please—
    Of all the colors, I’d rather have these!

  18. I am starting to feel a little sorry for myself, everyone seems to have all of these wonderful roosters and I only have some rooster toile wallpaper in my kitchen cabinets...nothing like all of your lovely fowl. These are great, so cute! Have a cock-a-doodle-good day!
