On our facebook community, a very nice reader, Nikki, recently mentioned that she’d just returned from a Kauai vacation. I asked her what she thought of her trip to the Garden Isle. Nikki’s response was,
“Kauai is beautiful….but there are WAY too many roosters!”
Kauai does have an abundance of feral chickens roaming that gorgeous island. There are several theories as to why Kauai has so many wild chickens, but nobody seems to know the definitive reason.
I first visited Kauai in 2003 and of course came home with the obligatory Kauai vacation photo of a wild chicken. With each return, it seems to me that there are more wild chickens. I’m not sure if the population is actually increasing or if I’m just more aware of them.
I thought it would be interesting to see what you all think of the Kauai chicken scene. Do you think Kauai’s chicken population is quirky and cute or crazy and annoying?
