Robin Weather Vane Feeding Chicks by West Coast Weather Vanes. This version of the weathervane features a baby chick on each directional. When it is placed outside and the wind blows, the mother robin "feeds" her baby chicks. The original idea of incorporating the directionals into an active design element of the turning weather vane, is an original design concept by West Coast Weather Vanes.
A richly detailed c. 1870 copper rooster, complete with a ball-and-arrow base, rests on a plain modern stand. The original mount would have been custom-fitted to the roof on which the rooster formerly perched.
