Chickens, chickens everywhere!

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD

Chickens have no predators here on Kauai so they proliferate wildly and roam free—everywhere. We saw even more than I ever remember before as we drove up the east coast of the island and around to the north shore.

Roosters at the airport. Chickens with broods of chicks. Cocks with stunningly beautiful tail feathers squaring off for hens along the road. Roosters in the trees trying to get advantage. It’s early spring it seems, and mating and procreating are in full force.

We head for our “mountain” home for the week, high in the hills above Hanalei. We pass a herd of hogs in the road and goats meandering. Then we’re greeted by a lowing cow, barking dog, and friendly homeowner. We love to stay in a neighborhood, where locals live, away from the hum drum of the beach tourists. Don’t worry—we know to be careful with the water here in the winter!! Tomorrow we’ll be headed to the south shore for snorkeling, but today we are going to chill at the beach at Hanalei Bay where the surf is low enough for swimming. Aloha!
