Headrick was shocked to find the KFC bucket on her lawn as she drove by, but her family now embraces the landmark with open arms.

An unexpected piece of lawn art — a vintage -seven foot KFC bucket — has made Aleena Headrick’s house into something of a Georgia landmark.

“I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside,” Headrick told WAGT 26.

The bucket appeared on her family’s lawn Headrick’s Waynesboro, Ga. last Thursday.

Headrick’s home has already become a local tourist attraction, drawing shutterbugs to the comically enormous structure.

“Too often we just need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck,” Headrick said.

Headrick’s Landord, Freddie Taylor, solved the mystery. He collects old signs and said he had bought the bucket and dropped it off on his property.

Taylor believes the bucket is around 40 years old because of its design.

KFC has offered the family a free fried chicken picnic to accompany the bucket. KFC spokesman, Rick Maynard, told Fox: “KFC has offered to cater a picnic for Ms. Headrick, her family and friends … It would be fun to enjoy a KFC meal in the shadow of a giant KFC bucket.”

The landlord wants the bucket to be propped up on the lawn for everyone to see, and Headrick’s family agrees.
