Big Metal Rooster

The chicken, about 15 feet tall, is named "BC" -- short for Big Chicken. He's positioned across the street from the Star Mercantile/Front Door Cafe, an eatery and general store. BC is outside and visible, but the cafe has limited hours.

These colorful roosters are produced somewhere else (Mexico?). There are many around, though this one seems to be on the tall end of the rooster spectrum.
