    Did anyone see the article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, about the chickens on Kuaui (sp?). Apparently the island is overrun, partly because they are no mongooses like there are on the other island to keep the population down. My favorite part was about how to cook a rooster--put it in a pot with a lava rock, and when the rock is soft, you have two more hours to go! There is the (THING that people do with roosters that CAN'T be discussed on BYC!) to blame apparently for an abundance of roosters. I tell you--chickens are going mainstream!

    ETA--why do weird things happen to my posts (words disappear, change)--is this place haunted!

    I read the article also. You can buy a trap off e-bay to catch them in!
    Couldn't you just see the patrons reactions when they walk right into restaurants uninvited! Wait, be careful or you will be ON the menu [​IMG]
