Rooster and Turkey
Springdale, AR (now Lincoln, AR)


The Rooster and Turkey stood at opposite ends of the parking lot of 4-State Poultry Supply in 2010. The turkey was painted brown in the 1980s. When the business closed in 2012, the statues were moved to Preferred Poultry Supply in Lincoln, AR. [map]

Turkey [gone]
Cicero, NY
The Turkey in Ames was made of stainless steel by Larry Pearson. The sculpture was installed in 2012 in front of the Iowa Turkey Federation office. For more, see this website. [map]

The Turkey in Cicero, aka "Bronco Tom Turkey", rides a rearing horse. The statue was created by Sharon BuMann for the "Horses On Parade" public art project in 2002. The statue was then known as "All American Tom" because of the flag and red, white and blue color scheme. The statue was installed in front of the former Plainville Farms restaurant in Cicero. It was moved to the restaurant's Camillus, NY location for a few years before returning here. This restaurant closed around 2010 just before this photo was taken. By 2013, the statue was gone.

World's Largest Turkey
Frazee, MN
Frazee, MN
The World's Largest Turkey is 22 feet tall. The original "Big Tom" was 16 feet tall and built in 1986. It was created by Shell Scott using metal, cement, fiberglass, cardboard and insulation. The statue required frequent repairs and the town decided to build another one. In 1998, while removing the original turkey with a cutting torch, it caught fire and was completely destroyed. This replacement statue was produced by DWO Fiberglass Co. and installed in 1998. It is made of fiberglass and is reinforced with steel. For more, see this website. [map]

This smaller, white Turkey is located downtown. It may have been installed before the one from 1986. [map]

This Turkey statue in San Francisco is installed over the entrance to Robert's Corned Meats. The green paint on the statue is a reference to the store's Irish heritage and its Shamrock Brand of meats. [map]

Giant Chickens

Giant Chicken
Tifton, GA
Giant Chicken [gone]
Marysville, OH
These detailed Chickens are scattered around Winlock. I believe they were installed in 2007. Winlock was once considered the Egg Capital of the World and is also home to a Giant Egg statue. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

This Chicken in Marysville is the same type as those in Winlock. It is located in Jennings Park.

This Chicken in Tifton stands in front of the Wishbone Fried Chicken restaurant. These are very similar to the Winlock statues but appear to be standing in tall grass, hence my nickname "Tall Grass Chicken." [map]

This Chicken in Marysville was installed in front of Crazy Scotty's Building Supplies. By 2018, the store and the statue were gone.

Wisdom's Cafe has two chickens installed in front of their restaurant. One is outfitted with antlers. These statues are from the same mold as the Henny Penny statue. For lack of any known manufacturer or name, I've been calling them "Smooth Chickens." [map]

The first Chicken in Austin shown above was produced by Faith Schexnayder of Flat Fork Studios. The chicken is made of foam and covered with fiberglass. The sculpture has been restored twice. Faith created "Ethel", a mother hen, around 1998. She wanted the chicken to have a "don't mess with my chicks" look for the yard in which her young daughter plays. This photo is from 2008. Around 2013, the Chicken was painted black and white. For more, see this website. [photo thanks Faith Schexnayder] [map]

The Chicken & Worm in Austin was installed at Roadhouse Relics around 2015. It appears to be made of foam. [map]

The Chicken in Puyallup is located at the Washington State Fair. I believe this might be an altered Chicken Delight statue (1, 2).

The Chicken in Bothell is installed in front of the Country Village Shopping Center. The statue is about 15 feet tall and stands over a giant egg. It was built by Rod Loveless in 2005 from styrofoam blocks. The blocks came from furniture packing materials when the business opened. Loveless glued them together, carved them into the chicken shape, and covered the sculpture with fiberglass. The statue was still there in 2018 but gone by 2019.

The Red Hen Cantina chicken statue is installed on the roof. [map]

This Bantam Chef restaurant features this rooster sculpture on the roof. It was designed and built by Robert and Bruce Gentry. Bantam Chef hamburger stands were part of a Southern chain. [map]

The Chicken in Rossville was installed on top of the canopy roof of Happy Motors, a former gas station. Unfortunately, the angle of the sun did not allow me to photograph him all that well in 2005. He was really bright yellow and probably about 10 feet tall. The statue was there in 2007 but gone by 2015.
