It looks very nice.

We highly recommend buying this weather vane if you want one that isn't too expensive.

The weathervane is cute, as you can see from the photos. It's not evident from the description, but the item is made from pretty lightweight steel, easily bendable with your hands. This is not a problem once it's one the roof.

I was very disappointed in the packaging and customer service. Despite paying $14 for shipping and handling, the item was poorly packed and arrived bent and with badly scratched paint. I contacted customer service. They wanted me to pay for shipping the item back to them, and after they received it, they might send me a replacement, as if it were my fault they packed it badly! It was less time, money and hassle to just buy a can of spray paint, so that's why mine is black in the photo above.

We are pleased with the way it looks, and it's just the right size (and price) for our chicken coop. Appearance-wise, it's a decent value for the money. Don't count on it to tell you what's happening with the weather--the weathervane part is tail-heavy, and ours has never moved, even in strong winds.

Weather is VERY well made. Very good construction. Very little assembly required. Arrived in excellent condition. Very well packaged. Mine has been up for several months now, in ALL kinds of weather, and it still looks the same.

This is a good weather vane. I put it on the roof of a two story shed and it has been through a few storms this winter. It still works great. If I had it to do over, I would paint it a different color. There are tall trees in back of it and it is hard to see. Black might be OK in front of a blue sky, but one seldom looks at the weather vane when the sky's are blue. White would be a better color.

This is an inexpensive, easy to install weathervane that actually works. I just completed our backyard chicken coop, 4X8X7 foot tall, when this vane arrived. It arrived undamaged, very quickly, and I had it up in 15 minutes.

It's lightweight and pretty with a separate but solid base that can be bent by hand to mold to roof's incline. It shows four holes to nail or screw to one's roof. The rafters on my coop are made up of 2x3's which means they're only 1 1/2 inches in thickness. So, I screwed another 2X3 piece to the rafters because you need almost 3 inches of wood to support the base. No biggie.

The cups spin to the wind on a bearing and the chicken arrow moves. The directionals are the least to be swayed but do. They all simply slide on the base. We have strong winds here, but I believe the weathervane will hold up since it's light and the wind resistance minimum.

The kids love it. I like it because of the cost, there's some mighty pricey ones out there, the size and the quick delivery.

This has a nice textured enamel finish that is mostly copper-colored with little flakes of black.

The sealed ball-bearing works smoothly and silently.
That allows the wind-speed cups to actually spin! ( unlike other weather vanes we've had.)

The stainless steel post should resist rusting. It does require a drop of oil (once a year) to keep the rooster spinning.
My plan is to bring a little can of 3-in-1 oil up to the roof every fall when I clean the gutters.

My wife, who is directionally-challenged, wondered how I got the East-West direction letters so perfectly aligned. She watched me from the ground as I did this four-minute job just as the evening sun was going down.

"Did you use a compass? Did you use the compass in the car-mirror? How could you see that from way up there? Did you use your smart phone? Ask SIRI? HOW?"

I just looked at her and resisted the urge to face-palm.

When I pointed silently at the setting sun, it took her a full ten seconds before dawn broke over marble-head.

So, there's a tip: Install this near sunrise or sunset to get the East-West directions right.

To prevent water from infiltrating under the mounting plate into screw holes, I recommend using "pole-barn screws." They have a neoprene washer that effectively seals out water. They are also convenient since they are self-tapping and fit into the 1/4" hex-hole on every cordless impact-driver. (no special bit needed) You'll want two-inch long pole-barn screws that are slightly less major diameter than the 3/16ths" holes. You only need four, but good luck buying just four. Luckily, those screws are super handy to keep on hand for MANY other jobs, so buying a whole box is not extravagant.

We put the rooster weathervane on the roof of our shop. I'm happy with the size and that it actually spins. It looks very nice.
