The Big Chicken (Kentucky Fried Chicken)

Anyone who lives in the Atlanta area has heard of the Big Chicken in Marietta.  Directions to anything in the Marietta area are generally described with reference to the Big Chicken.

An advertising ploy that dates back to when burgers were 15 cents, the 56 foot chicken with moveable beak and eyes was spared from demolition in 1993 by locals who had become rather fond of the bird.    You can buy KFC chicken and stop by the gift shop to purchase Big Chicken memorabilia.
