I guess a better title would be "why"?

I saw this chicken in a yard during our bike ride on Monte Isola in Italy last weekend. *See my previous post for more on Monte Isola.

My goodness - look at that!! :)

That's one huge Chicken Little!!! :P lol

That chicken is wild. I would do a double take if I passed it. Perfect for the theme.

But does it crow?

I also wonder "why". It looks like something you see on a float in a parade. Was it made of paper or cardboard?

June:

Why indeed! I guess Italy has no zoning laws :-) Thanks for stopping by...and the answer to mine is it's an Ugly Doll. If you're interested, you can see in entirety and read about by clicking on link in my post.

I love it! It reminds me of a float for a parade, like the Rose Bowl. What was it made of? Great find!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, wow that's huge! Great selection of your theme photo!

Have a great day!

María and Annie, good guess! Katia told me that they had a parade there every year and the chicken was probably a float for the parade. But still...why would you have a chicken in your yard? And no, it did not cluck, or at least not while I was checking it out. I am not sure what it was made out of. It seemed to be made out of a shiny type of paper, maybe some sort of material?
