My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

A Big Chicken

May 13th, 2007 - Delano, MN

Delano chicken1

Further east on Highway 12 from Darwin we come across this large chicken. He stands next to a gas station and overlooks the highway. He is 13 feet tall and is goofy looking. I don't know if it's his ugly looking feet, the fact that he carries himself like a human, or that creepy guy who wears nothing but a trench coat and exposes himself pose, but this guy is so odd you have to love it.

For a history of the chicken, go to this page from the Delano Herald Journal.

Here's another shot from his good side.
