It started when we had a Breaking hearts and planting farts shirt customer back in 1987 or so, who asked for a pair of plastic pink flamingos. Of course we didn’t have them in stock – no one did back then – but told them we would order a pair for them. Thought that was a fun idea.

And, Dern if that other pair didn’t sell as Breaking hearts and planting farts shirt soon as we put them out! So we thought, lets put 10 pairs out – it would be fun. Ordered em in…Sold em. Ok, 100 pairs, yep, sold em, and folks were really having fun with them, so plastic pink flamingos out front now that would really be fun.
We had the flock out there for lots of years. Made them migrate away in the Breaking hearts and planting farts shirt winter, started having alone “Scout Bird” show back up, randomly on no certain date – but often around Valentine’s Day each year – we thought it would be fun to announce that the Flock was coming back soon and so was Spring.
