    A number of chickens escaped their coops/pens during a hurricane about 15 years ago. Mixed and mingled and what you have now is lots of pretty, mixed-breed, feral chickens.

    My family (minus me) just got back from Hawaii and at my request took some feral chicken photos. They don't care for chickens so the photos weren't so hot. They said the chickens "potty" on everything and the noise is very disruptive. But they are a good tourist draw so nothing is done about them. I imagine they are very hardy if no one is worming or de-lousing them etc. Or else maybe you just don't notice they ill or dying ones

    These are some of the feral chickens we saw on Oahu @ Hanauma Bay. The roosters were especially handsome!
