The most interesting thing I've discovered on Kauai is the chicken situation. Apparently hurricane Iniki destroyed all the chicken cages in 1992, releasing I don't know how many birds into the wild. Since they have no predators on the island (except for the occasional local) they are now all over the place.
I've developed the habit of yelling CHICKEN every time we seen one. I think Casey and Jennie will be hearing CHICKEN in their dreams long after the sound of the surf has left their memories on the mainland :)
Don't believe me? These guys came up to visit me on Ke'e beach today. Aren't they cute?!
