Feral chickens, brought by the first Polynesian settlers, outnumber the human population of Kaua’i, even at the height of tourist season, by a wide margin. They are everywhere and pretty, but the cocks crow constantly.
And in case you are wondering about their food value, here’s a recipe we were given: take a large pot, fill it 2/3 with water, place a medium sized lava stone in it, together with the plucked and cleaned chicken. Simmer gently until the lava stone is soft. Chicken is ready to be eaten.
