VINCENT LIVES

See Little Joe, our young rooster.  He is growing very nicely and is a big boy.  At seven months of age he is just right for a rooster stew so I hope none of our hungry neighbors will see him.  We do not eat any of our chickens.


See Vincent at the back of the barn.  I did not know he was there until I looked at this photo.  Vincent was the scarecrow my grandson Michael built to keep predators away from the chickens.  Vincent stood in our back field for a couple of years in rain and snow and sun.  Ron told the boys to take Vincent down their last visit and I just now realized this protector was stored in the barn instead of destroyed. 

It made me smile to see him there.

(The suggestions in the original post comments caused me to have the grandsons all go out and pee on Vincent.)

  1. It's like Vincent and Little Joe are friends. :) I wouldn't have seen Vincent either if you hadn't pointed him out.

  2. I like your photo of Vincent. He does look young but handsome as roosters are. I love to hear them crowing in the morning.

  3. Lynn -- Little Joe has probably had to befriend Vincent because Rooster Chicklet runs the young rooster away from the flock. Guess the two outcasts hang out together.

    Abe Lincoln -- Luckily our neighbors like to hear Roosters crowing too. We're on ten acres but rooster's voices carry far and wide.

  4. Lynn -- Also you may have posted your comment before I made some changes and posted a link to the original story about Vincent. Just FYI

  5. Vincent would have scared the bejeebers out of me if you hadn't pointed him to me. Glad him and Little Joe are best buds. Went back and read the original Vincent post about all the peeing. I'm assuming it worked since Vincent has been retired.

  6. Vincent is very convincing scrarecrow...why did you take him down?

  7. Bonnie -- Yes he worked very well. I'm hoping we'll be okay as the weather gets colder and the coyotes get hungrier and Vincent isn't there to keep an eye out.

    Changes in the wind -- I'm pretty sure Ron was tired of mowing around him. Now that I know where he is and since mowing season is over, I might just have to put him out again.

  8. Haa.. What a Rooster !

    We once used to grow chicks here when I used be a child. We used to have so much fun taking care of them.

  12. I think if I would have walked into your barn and seen Vincent without knowing he was there - I'd be changing my pants.

  13. Ralph -- Or should I say "Running Bear"? I am guessing that after your past encounter with the mother bear, Vincent would have disturbed you in the least. LOL

  16. That is awesome! And I have never heard of rooster stew. Is it full of cock? :O

  17. In this pic I realized Vincent is reminding me of the "Scream!" movie villian- Black hood, long white face...
    Well chickens need buddies too, even if they are cousins of "Wilson" in "Castaway"

  18. Chatty Crone -- Well he did his job that's for sure.

    Shionge -- Oh that's right. I loved that post. Don't tell your friend that we have a scarecrow with the same name. LOL

    Riot Kitty -- Only you would come up with that! Yes, I would say that is what the stew is full of. LOL

    Snaggle Tooth -- I will let you know when I start talking to Vincent. Then it will be time to take me to a deserted island. LOL

  19. Vincent would have been good for Halloween. I posted a reply to your question on the sign at my blog so that others who had the same question might also see, although it was hardly an answer.

  20. Tabor -- Now that I know where the remains of Vincent are stored, he might come out to celebrate next Halloween. Hey, you call "26" a sign? Wonder what that was about. Thanks for the follow up.
