The originals, by Don Featherstone, have better details and the color seems to hold up better in the sun.

The other brands can be had at Lowes, Dollar General, and other places. About 20 bucks for a pair.

Don't forget, they mate for life!!!!!!!!

We purchased our Featherstone flamingos on eBay several years ago. They weren't very expensive and as Sandlapper states, they do seem to weather well.

I bought mine at Camping World. The metal legs come out all of the time which is dangerous with little ones running around. So I'm going to have to glue them in or something.

What is the significance of the pink flamingoes? Do they have a special meaning?
