The Big Chicken

Location: Marietta, GA

Although today the Big Chicken is part of a KFC, it was originally built in 1963 to decorate the site of Johnny Reb's Chick-Chuck-'N'-Shake. The restaurant's owner created the bird with moving eyes and beak in order to promote his business, but since then the structure has become a landmark attraction. While KFC continues its efforts to create big chickens for consumption, this Chicken has always been big, naturally.
