We Can Do It Cheaper - Who Needs A Turkey?

The Virginia House


When you can have a rooster?
Ok, so I know many of you have seen and loved the rooster that has been roosting over at PB. (it has found a new home since they no longer sell them)

I don't know if my recollection is correct, but I think it retailed for around $50. It is a beauty, and anyone would be proud to own a rooster such as this. But....

When my mom and I went to Canton then she picked up 3 roosters and gifted one of them to me. It was actually a mud brown color when she bought it, but after seeing PB's magnificent (if a ceramic rooster can be magnificent) rooster, then I decided that mine needed to be white as well.

The only thing wrong with this rooster is that I have so many places for it to roost. (is that getting old?)


My total cost.. FREE! My moms total cost, $5. Still not so bad!

By the way, have a great and thankful Thanksgiving and if you get a moment, link up!

Hey Jillian,
This rooster is fabulous! My mom had a great collection, and I got a few. I really like them, now that we have real chickens.
One day, when you're headed to Canton, we'll have to meet. I go several times a year :) Have a junkin' party.
Happy Thanksgiving,
Becky C
