Rooster I

Okay, can I just tell you about the ROOSTERS on Kauai?  The island is infested with them!  I use the word "infested" loosely because I totally fell in love with these guys, so much so that I haven't eaten chicken, since.

The history behind it, is that chickens, wild chickens and fighting cocks were brought to the island by early settlers and after the hurricane of '92, the distruction of the coops set the chickens free to roam the island.  They have since multiplied making them the Kings of the Roads (we even got t-shirts that say that) as there are no natural predators after them.

I miss the cock-a-doodling in the morning (and sometimes during the day and evening)!
