World's Largest "Booming" Prairie Chicken

221 1st St NW, Rothsay, Minnesota 56579 USA

“Attractions in Rothsay, MN”

Prairie Chickens have one of the most memorable mating “dances” in the animal kingdom. The male stomps his feet while releasing a “booming” sound which is triggered from his puffy orange sacs. In honor of this interesting chicken a 13-foot tall statue was erected in Rothsay, the self-proclaimed Prairie Chicken Capital of Minnesota for America’s 1976 Bicentennial.

A wonderful stop. A bit confusing and not well lit in the evening. But all in all the stop is well worth the quick stroll to the Chicken. As other reviews stated gas is across the street with ample parking for whatever you are traveling with. Gas station was well lit and they even sell postcards of the Chicken.
