Feathers are flying in New Mexico.

A restaurant owner says whoever messed with his giant rooster is a chicken.

Sparky, the 8-foot rooster statue, has been pushed off its perch.

The big bird sits outside of Sparky's Burgers, BBQ and Espresso near the town of Hatch.

Owner Teako Nunn say most people love his giant rooster.

But he adds some people hate it.

A local paper reports Nunn has several outsized statues that have been subject to commercial sign issues.

But Nunn says no one has ever attacked his big bird before.
