The Giant Roosters shown at this page were produced by International Fiberglass in the 1960s. They are eight feet tall and weigh 100 pounds. The statues could be ordered with custom paint jobs. However, the exotic paint schemes on the statues shown below at this page were done later. These statues have been copied by other companies. Many of these copies are made of aluminum. For more, see this website.
