All the birds of Kauai saved my life..
By tha way all the Birds talk to me.I fill in co snow sking and a bird started yelling out to see if i was ok.then another one was asking the same when i was back on the lift. .
We come to Kauai each year and love to see and hear the chickens,, to us they are kings and queens..
We also love the people and their attitudes. I feel the chickens send out an “aloha” each time we see and hear them….Mahalo Ted & Mary
Your scorn is misinformed and a bit ethnocentric.
The concern is for human drivers, not for chickens. Any debris on a major highway is a liability to drivers who are traveling seven lanes across at 70 plus mph. Over a dozen, moving, flopping, running objects in the same stretch of road is a major hazard to drivers who are liable to swerve when a large object flies in front of them or strikes a windshield. That’s a recipe for a car pile-up with many dead or injured. The same action would be taken by safety personnel on the Nimitz Hwy.
We don’t appreciate it when people from afar mock island ways that they don’t understand. Maybe best not to mock the ways of other in their local contexts, when you don’t understand.
