Fitzgerald, Georgia: World's Largest Skeletal Chicken

A steel frame and a wire mesh head, 62 feet tall, weighs 19 tons. Was planned to have a skin woven of live plants, and a motel room in its belly. Construction stopped in 2020, and in 2023 the town voted to leave it the way it is.

World's Largest Chicken Under Construction

It will be interesting to see what it looks like when complete. The chicken should have been put somewhere besides the Harvey's parking lot.

Topiary Chicken 62+ Feet Tall

We are constructing a rather large Topiary Chicken in Fitzgerald, Georgia! Steel wire construction -- and it has a Foggy Leghorn hotel room in it!

[Joe Kyte, 08/04/2020]

Well, the chicken and its belly room still have a ways to go. Fitzgerald is known for its population of wild chickens, and the giant fowl was conceived to top the 56-foot-tall Big Chicken in Marietta. When completed, Fitzgerald's clucker will have a skin of live plants.
