The Big Chicken

Every town has something for which it is known. Around here, we have the Big Chicken. It's been around a long time, and it has a pretty cool history. It was designed by a GA Tech student (we'll let that one slide) back in the 60's. Even when it was damaged severely by a storm in the 90's, people refused to let it die. They demanded it be repaired. To this day, the eyes still roll around and around, and the beak still opens and closes. I was recently driving by when I noticed it was getting repainted. This icon now sits atop a full, regular service KFC. But it does a lot more than advertise. Everyone around here uses it for directions, as it sits at a very busy intersection. So, if you're ever in the area, and someone says, "Turn right at the Big Chicken", you'll know what to do! Send me your hometown uniqueness!
