On Kauai, one of the first things to notice are the roosters (crowing at all hours of the day) and the chickens. Lots of them, roaming over almost all areas of Kauai! They were liberated from their cages by Hurricane Iniki on Sept. 11, 1992 -- the most powerful hurricane to strike the Hawaiian islands in recorded history. The eye passed directly over Kauai. The chickens and roosters have managed to survive on their own, ever since.
