More Chickens in the Collection

What looks like a little tea party is actually a Hen Party - the little Red Hen tea pot was an E-bay find - just could not resist!  Got her for a great little price because of a tiny speck chip on the tail.  No worries - can't see it - does not reflect the POUR-ability of the bird in question!  And, see the little CHICKS??
They were a good find at a thrift shop last spring...Lefton brand figurines, one with a fractured toe, which I was able to repair.  Can't leave an injured baby chick like that...tsk tsk tsk!
And here is poultry by another name - a Turkey - made of a small gourd - folk art from Mexico, perhaps?  A gift from my son who knows what I will like - and this birds head and tail bob up and down when you tap it one time.  Too Cool!
And last, today, is a Rooster Cookie Jar that I won in a drawing, free of charge, from a good friend of mine,  Angela of West Virginia - I entered one of her contests and the prize was a gift certificate from a store sponsorship - a prize of my choosing.  I liked this Roo the very best of all of their offerings!  His perch is the highest and most prominent location in my kitchen!
...More of my collection to come!

I love that rooster cookie jar! Angela is great - I've been following her blog since the early days of blogging for me!

I don't know if you ever do link ups, but this would be a great post to link up with Rural Thursday (you can find it on my blog today) if you were interested in meeting some other chicken enthusiasts!

Lovely table setting! Especially like your lamp and teddy bear. Interesting how it has been electrified. I LOVE the old turn of the century gone with the wind oil lamps also. The chicks will be adorable for Easter decorations!!

I don't know how I missed this post! I love all of your chickens! I'm glad you won my giveaway and got that handsome roo! Can't wait to see more of your collection!

Is it possible to have too many chickens? I think not!
