Keep track of the winds direction with this adorable rooster weathervane. It has been constructed with strong, 14 gauge steel and then finished with copper-colored powder-coat paint that is made to last. It measures 30 H x 21 W x 21 D....more
This rooster weather vane is pretty much as advertised, which is a good thing, at a good price. Nice design, sturdy construction and made in the USA. The only real downside is the lack of specificity in the instructions, which doesn't tell you which way to mount the wind cups, but the picture helped, after using a magnifying glass. No screws were included with the base mount, which was no issue for me, because I have my own workroom, but some people may not be too pleased with that little surprise, which means a trip to the hardware store. Some companies offer the option of which way the directional letters are laid out. For me the N & S are backwards when you look from the front of the house. Not a big deal, but then again, neither is offering the option, as other companies do.
This is beautifully made item with a great finish. The mounting bracket was a bit smaller than expected, but we were able to compensate for that when we installed it by adding another bracket. It gets quite windy here and we wanted to make sure it wouldn't blow off the wall.
We're very pleased with this item.
I ordered the mount for a "side" installation but it turned out to be the wrong type. I reordered the correct type of mount but the tube that actually holds the weathervane was far too large and the screws did not go in far enough to stabilize the vane. After a long period of time my husband finally got it mounted but had to put it on the fence instead of the roof. Somewhat disappointing but the weathervane is very nice and is a nice addition to our patio. It would be helpful to have the size of the mounting tube available at the time of purchase.
Looks very nice on our fence post. Excellent quality and price. Perhaps smaller than some folks would like, but for us, it provides a very lovely and functional yard decoration on our fence post. Would recommend to anyone looking for a small footprint weathervane.
Really like it but was hoping to find a crowing rooster. I did however after I bought this one. That's ok. This one is really nice and really well made like the other 2 I have bought. It is a gift to a family member.

So, want to put in cart, but it asks what option. but there is no option for roof listed. I want to put on roof, can it be done? Leesolagratia on Apr 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question solagratia. The roof mount is sold out, that is why there is not an option for it. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 23, 2014
Hi chefleco, this item weighs 4 pounds except for the garden mount which weighs 7 pounds. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 25, 2014
The illustration of the various mounts available is too small to see -- unlike the photo of the product, it cannot be enlarged. I want to install this on a 5'x10' chicken coop with a slanted roof (6' tall at the front slanting to 5' tall at the back). Will any of these mounts work?justbeeme on Oct 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi, justbeeme. This weather vane comes with a variety of mounts, including a roof mount, which allows it to be mounted on the peak of a slanted roof. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 7, 2013
As to using this weather vane on a garden stake....does it come with one and if so...how tall is it, please? We just had a horrific storm go through last week and my weather vane got quite mangled so I am in the market for a new one. We had bought it at a craft fair and it came with a separate metal rod that was through a hole that we drilled in the top and bottom railings of our deck and it worked great. This one that you are selling is very similar to the damaged one so I am thinking it will fit our rod if it doesn't come with one. Thank you for your time.rosielu5 on Jul 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello rosielu5, and thanks for your interest in the Handmade Cuckoo Rooster Weathervane. In the picture next to the weather vane it shows everything that comes with it, a garden mount, a flat mount and one for a roof. It is sitting on a rod, which makes the total height 30". I hope this helps, and thank you for shopping with us.

Does this weather vane come with mounting supplies for a roof of a shed? Is it to big for an 8' x 10' shed?treasa12 on Aug 10, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This weather vane comes with mounting brackets. It measures 30 inches high by 21 inches wide by 21 inches deep, so it should not be too big for a shed measuring eight feet by 10 feet. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 12, 2012
