It has been previously mentioned by me (and kitten) that anytime anyone gives you directions in Marietta (or Roswell), or even Atlanta in general, the Big Chicken is often referenced as a landmark.

Even Google has gotten in on it...

Is this Big Chicken akin to Ra or some other idol? I wanna know about human sacrifices to the great cluck.

You can start by googling Leo Frank and Marietta, GA. Although it was not a sacrifice *TO* the Great Chicken God, it occured on almost the same groud that the idol was built upon.
