While visiting Kaua’i you can’t help but notice the plethora of roosters every where you go. Apparently the cat population is not very large here, my cat Reeses would have had a field day. Theory has it that in 1992 a hurricane that hit devastated the chicken farms and released the roosters into the wild, since there are no natural predators on the island they have proliferated. Locals don’t seem to mind and they are actually quite beautiful. Every other island has a healthy population of mongoose who love to feast on bird eggs (originally they were introduced to keep the rats from decimating the sugar plantations).
The baby chicks are cute and the roosters are beautiful colors of blue, green, and red. When you visit Kaua’i you’ll learn to love the sound of the rooster as it crows throughout the day.
