Chicken in a Top Hat and Tails

Outside of the corner of the Dough Roller restaurant, at the far end from the boardwalk, is a 10-foot-tall chicken wearing a top hat, tux, and an ascot. I'm not sure of its exact history, but the chicken was built to promote Dayton's Fried Chicken, which is either served in the Dough Roller or is owned by the Dough Roller.
