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

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]

Giant Chicken
Tifton, GA
Giant Chicken
Webster, FL
Giant Chickens
Crawfordville, FL
Giant Chicken [gone]
Marysville, OH
These statues are very similar to the Winlock statues described above but appear to be standing in tall grass, hence my nickname "Tall Grass Chickens."

The Chicken in Tifton stands in front of the now-closed Wishbone Fried Chicken restaurant. [map]

The Chicken in Webster was painted sometime after 2015. It is installed at El Curiosities which sells home decor and many statues. [map]

The Chickens in Crawfordville have been installed in front of Lindy's Chicken since at least 2007. [map]

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

Carry Out
McHenry, IL
Wisdom's Cafe
Tumacacori-Carmen, AZ
Carlsbad Boot Camp
Carlsbad, CA
These "Smooth Chicken" (my name) statues were obviously mass-produced. However, I don't know what company made them or what chain they may have advertised for originally.

The Henny Penny Carry Out restaurant features this giant chicken on the roof. [map]

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 chicken in Carlsbad is installed on the roof of the Carlsbad Boot Camp. The building previously housed Bobby's Hideaway Cafe, a guitar shop, and a bike shop. According to one source, there was originally an egg farm here. [map]

Giant Chicken
Austin, TX
Giant Chicken & Worm
Austin, TX
Giant Chicken
Puyallup, WA
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. The statue has been repainted in bright colors and moved closer to the road. 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).

Giant Chicken
North Hills, CA
Giant Chicken [gone]
Bothell, WA
The Chicken in North Hills is installed on the roof of La Tapachulteca poultry market. It has been there since at least 2007. [map]

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.

Cloverleaf
Ardmore, OK
Squawk N Skoot
El Reno, OK
This Chicken Head is located at the Cloverleaf store. It is not known where it came from. The store is closing in 2018 and everything is being sold off. [map]

The Squawk N Skoot restaurant features this giant chicken on the side of the building. [map]

Giant Chicken
Elkton, TN
This Giant 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 giant chicken remains. [map]

Giant Chicken
Dothan, AL
Giant Chicken
Petaluma, CA
This Giant 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 Giant 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]

Giant Rooster
Waukesha, WI
Giant Rooster [gone]
Brundidge, AL
The wood-carved Rooster in Waukesha is located at Andrea's Red Rooster restaurant and bar. [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 Giant Bull sculpture is located just a little north of here in Troy, AL.

Roscoe the Rooster is a life-sized tribute to a local pet rooster. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

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 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 a very bright yellow and probably about 10 feet tall. The statue was there in 2007 but gone by 2015.
