Yard Chickens

With the economy in limbo, yard chickens may soon be back in style in town!

Well, THESE yard chickens obviously aren't the kind you can put in a pot of chicken 'n dumplings, but the creator John Ackerman, says they make great yard decorations. They are another flea market find, and I'm sure you can tell these unfeathered friends are made of rakes, shovels, part of a saw and a few other tool-type items. Below, the litter is pecking away.

They are sure colorful and I bet they are cleaner than real live feathered yard chickens! I have always wanted a rooster though, I love the way they cock-a-doodle-doo in the morning!
