Tourists enjoying holidays in Florida are descending on Tampa to take snaps of an unusual attraction: a church that looks like a chicken.

The Church by the Sea in Tampa Bay is causing a flutter of activity online after several visitors posted their holiday pictures showing the building's distinctive spire.

With two large round windows resembling eyes and a small section of beak-like tiled roof below them, the church has all the hallmarks of an egg-laying fowl.

'It's so funny - we were completely unaware that it had become a hit on the internet,' congregation member Dee Dee Parker told the Daily Mail.

'I'm glad we can make people smile. We see lots of people coming to take pictures of the church.'

More conventional Tampa attractions include the Big Cat Rescue zoo, the Busch Gardens theme park and the Adventure Island water park.

Sports fan can enjoy an NFL game at the Raymond James Stadium, home of the Buccaneers.
