Fowl news from Hawaii

The issue of feral chickens — and what happens when they cross the road — is again rearing its head at Honolulu Hale.

The city is looking for a better way to deal with chickens after its first attempts resulted in a cost of $108 per chicken caught and killed.

“A hundred dollars is a lot of money just to capture a chicken,” said Deputy Customer Services Director Randy Leong.

    Chickens are nothing. One town in Ohio had a feral flock of peacocks.

    Apparently feral peacocks are a national scourge as there is at least one company offering capture and removal services:

    Me being a pragmatic man, I would either look to chicken traps, or simply have the birds shot. Roosters are much easier to catch after you shot them. (and are much quieter too)

    I forsee the return of large bore air rifles.

    But they eat Spam 5 times a day!

  6. If that somehow became a problem ’round here, we’d have a chicken round-up day and free community barbecue. Problem solved. (Except it ain’t going to happen because most folks keep track of their egg supplies and fryers-to-be.)

    People to lazy to snag and prepare a fresh meal. Chickens are easy to get after dark. You simply watch them in the late evening hours and take note of where they went. Once it is full dark, you can walk up, grab them by the legs, then dispatch them with minimal effort.
    How I do excess roosters who have been chased from the coop.

  8. Sanders says:

    Put a bounty on chickens, make the bounty a little less than what chicken costs in the market so you don’t get people buying chickens to turn in for the bounty. Then give the meat to homeless shelters or have a great big chicken-fry beach party.

    There were feral chickens everywhere when I went to Hawaii. We even had a rooster by the annex at MCBH!

    Do any of these people know that if you kill and cook them they taste exactly like Chicken?

  11. H says:

    Import two or three Cajuns.

    Tell them the bag limit is two and the season closed yesterday.

    Problem solved.

    Next item please.
