“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.
Easy on/off us-83. Great photo opportunity. Worth the stop.
Excellent place to stretch your legs. Its right off the interstate. There are 3 panels explaining the statue.
We got great picutes of the chicken trying to "peck" my head.
Awesome. The chicken is actually at 1st st NW and old highway 52.
A quirky roadside stop if you're passing through the area! Stretch your legs and learn what it means when a prairie chicken "booms."
Right off the expressway- park across the street, has station in exit as well.
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.
Right off the freeway and a great photo op. Note: location given in Road trippers is a few blocks off. Statue is next to the school
Great place to stop at 4am LOL and the gas station was very close and full of friendly people too :D
