Chicken Boy's realm.

Chicken Boy - Muffler Man

Stopped by to see the famous chicken boy and found him still perched on top of the Future Studio Design and Gallery. The place appeared to be closed, but they did have some info about him on the door you can read. I walked around back and noticed they had some other interesting chicken artifacts stashed in the back lot.

I then got permission from a business a few doors down to climb up on their roof and get some rare shots of chicken boy overlooking the skyline. I also found that he is now located right next to the animal clinic although he was the only "chicken" I saw waiting outside.

He's up on my roof now...installation completed Oct 18. Uplighting still to be designed and installed.

Souvenir stand regular hours and updated web site (chickenboy.com) soon-ish. Drive-bys during the day will not disappoint. Big party may happen in early 2008.

1984 passed without the rise of Big Brother, but it did mark the fall of Chicken Boy.
