The Chicken House.

The Chicken House

The Chicken House is a small addition to a business that has statues of chickens and a woman chasing them on its flat roof. It is outside and you cannot enter it, but you can clearly see it from the road. You can also travel the entire town (it's a small town) and find really unusual homes throughout the area.
