Having some form of rooster in your garden is said to bring you luck and could just make you feel good. Perhaps that is one of the reasons that rooster décor has become so popular.
The end of winter can always be a somewhat depressing time of year for gardeners. We are often at the mercy of Mother Nature to start bringing warmer days of sunshine to melt ice and snow and thaw the earth for planting. This is the perfect time of year to start adding some “good luck” to our garden with some rooster cheer.

The Symbol of the Rooster in Different Cultures and Ethnic Backgrounds
Depending on your culture and ethnic background the rooster may symbolize more than just good luck. For instance, In Portugal there is the Galo de Barcelos, the national symbol of Portugal. The town of Barcelos is well known for its earthenware and the most popular symbol is the rooster. There the rooster symbolizes honesty, integrity, trust and honour.
When you add a door knocker like our rooster head knocker, you will be giving a clear message of honesty, integrity, trust and honour to the visitors to your home.
As anyone born in the Asian culture of China knows, people born in different years are said to be born under different signs. The sign of the rooster is one of those signs. People born under that sign are said to be practical quick thinkers who don’t like to take unnecessary risks. They enjoy a keen sense of detail and always seem to know what’s going on. Rooster people have a trusting behavior and are not easily fooled. They tend to be straight forward and love honesty.
Regardless of your culture or background however, the rooster will add some old country charm to your yard. Take a look at this rustic rooster bird house:
