Such charming little creatures.
You may know that my affection for chickens is not really new, as I shared here a few years back. I know I am not alone, as raising chickens has become pretty popular these days, even in urban settings.
If you pay attention, you'll see that they all have their own personalities. (Some share better than others, for example.)
We saw chickens and roosters everywhere...they were enjoying the beautiful lush landscape when we stopped at the lookout point...
...and we had fun watching them sunning themselves, poolside. It was even more fun to watch other people watching them cross the road.
According to some folks, the reason for the incredible number of these birds everywhere was due to hurricane Iniki, back in 1992, but other people say the Polynesians brought chickens to Hawaii in the canoe voyages, and they just kept multiplying.
However it is that these fluffy foul arrived, there's definitely no shortage of them anywhere you go on the island.
We also discovered that they develop a fondness for french fries at an early age when we stopped for lunch at Bubba's on our way to the airport.
