Elkton, TN
This Chicken stands in front of the Shady Lawn Truck Stop. It has been there since at least the early 1970s. The statue was restored around 2006. These photos are from 2007. The Chicken holds a knife under one wing and once held a fork under the other. By 2014, the statue had been repainted. [map]

Chicken Coop
Tweed, ON
The Chicken Coop started out as Drain Poultry, an egg farm. The building was housing a gift and clothing store when these photos were taken in 2007. The chicken remains. [map]

Dothan, AL
Petaluma, CA
This Chicken with a peanut body is installed in front of Wayne Farms, a chicken hatchery. Dothan is considered the peanut capital of the world and there are numerous statues installed around town. [map]

This Chicken is located at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds. Known as "Petaluma Pete", the statue was built by Harold Coombes. The statue may have been inspired by the statue that was built in 1918 by Albert Welchert for the Egg Day parade. In 1921, the statue was donated to the Chamber of Commerce. In 1938, the statue was blown up and destroyed by vandals. That statue was replaced by a standing chicken statue which is long gone now. For more, see this website. [map]

The Rooster in Brundidge was created from car bumpers by Larry Godwin. This sculpture stood in front of his ArtWurks gallery. It was built in 1962 and originally had a moving head and legs. In 2017, the sculpture was removed for restoration. His Bull sculpture is located just a little north of here in Troy, AL.

The Rooster in Boise was installed in front of Jerry's State Court Cafe when these photos were taken in 2014. Later that year, Jerry's closed and the Moon's Kitchen Cafe moved in. The business is now the Original Sunrise Cafe. The Rooster now has a colorful paint job. [map]

The Red Hen Cantina chicken statue was installed on the roof. The restaurant closed by 2021 and the statue is gone.

Chicken [gone]
Rossville, GA
Big Chicken
Gainesville, GA
Chicken Monument
Gainesville, GA
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 a very bright yellow and probably about 10 feet tall. The statue was there in 2007 but gone by 2015.

This Big Chicken in Gainesville is 25 feet tall and made of welded metal. Around 2005, it was installed on the roof of the Main Street Market on the downtown square. It is draped in lights and lit during the Christmas holiday season. In 2017, the Big Chicken was dismantled and rebuilt. For more, see this website. [map]

This Chicken Monument in Gainesville was installed in Poultry Park in 1977. The city claims to be the poultry capital of the world. [map]

Fitzgerald, GA
This Chicken framework is 62 feet tall, making it what was to be the world's largest topiary chicken. The frame was going to be covered with plants. These photos are from 2021. It was expected to be completed at the end of 2021 and the room inside was intended as a rental unit. However, after spending more than $300,000 for this initial construction and with a similar amount projected to complete it, the project has been abandoned. For more, see this website. [map]
