Giant Chicken

We found this big chicken. It is actually on Scruggs Road next to a Dollar General Store near Smith Lake. Once we found someone that knew where it was, the GPS got us there no problem. On the way, we discovered Boone's Country Store, an Amish run gift shop that is very much worth seeing as well...
