Kaua`i Trip

Some call Kaua`i the "Green Island" or the "Emerald Island" of Hawaii. These are catchy names, but one that might suite the island best is the "Feral Chicken Island". Story has it that early Filipino residents brought their chicken livestock and fighting cocks to the island in early history. Then recently, hurricanes (Iniki 1992?) tore open several coops, freeing the fowl. They now roam and reproduce in the wild without any predators to keep them in check. Sue and I saw several of them in markets, along roadways and even walking into restaurant areas on our recent trip to Kaua`i. video
