Aloha. I just moved back to the island of Kauai after taking a 3 year hiatus on the mainland. We had chickens before I moved away. At one point we had over 2 dozen. Store bought eggs will never compare to what you can get fresh from the coop. We just adopted 14 hens and 1 Silkie Rooster. All just over a year old. There are bantams, silkies, barred rock, americaunas and a few other breeds I am not yet sure of. In kauai there are a lot of wild chickens running around everywhere; at the mall, the beaches, parking lots and of course roosters perched outside my window that like to crow through out the night. You get used to it eventually. My dog knows which chickens are part of the family and which ones dont belong and now that we have our hens shes been great about chasing the wild ones out of our yard and away from the ladies. I have used this site as a resourse in the past. I am happy to be back.
