KFC 300x225 8 Foot KFC Bucket Found in Woman's Yard[1]A Georgia woman received quite a shock when she left her house on Thursday[2].

Aleena Headrick left her home in Waynesboro, Ga., and found an 8-foot tall Yum Brand’s (YUM[3]) Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket sitting in her front yard. Not believing what she was seeing, the woman called her two teenage boys out of the house, who confirmed that the bucket was really there. The boys decided to check if there was any chicken in the bucket, but there wasn’t, reports ABC News.

According to KFC spokesman Rick Maynard, that is about to change.

“We have been in touch with her and we’re working on a date when we can deliver Kentucky Fried Chicken and all the fixings for her and her family,” Maynard told ABC News.

A  local news report brought light as to where the KFC bucket came from. Headrick’s landlord, Freddie Taylor, is a collector of old signs. Taylor purchased the bucket and left it sitting in the yard sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday evening, reports ABC News.

Taylor plans to have the KFC bucket mounted to a pole[4] and placed in Headrick’s front yard as a landmark. Headrick said that she doesn’t mind the idea.
