Pollardville Cowboy Chicken

This chicken is in someone's yard and half a block from the sausage cow.

[Ken, 08/02/2013]

Former mascot of a local fake ghost town and restaurant, the chicken wears a cowboy hat brim, holster, spurs, and a vest with a Pollardville sheriff's star on it. Unfortunately it's tucked in a backyard lot.
