Chicken Church

A church that looks like a chicken has become an internet sensation. The Church by the Sea in Madeira Beach, Florida, US has caused quite a flap as a chicken’s eyes, beak and wings can be made out. Built in the 1940s, the church has a tall cross which lights up to direct fishermen back to the land. It wasn’t intended to look like a chicken - the church’s bird-like features are used as a compass to direct sailors - its wings represent East and West, while its beak and tail symbolise North and South.
