I return from Hawaii

Back from Kauai.

Wild chickens were running around everywhere on the island. A lot of Kauai farm chickens flew the coop during Hurricane Iniki, and they've been thriving in the wilderness.

I found myself wondering if your typical housecat could take a wild chicken in a fight. My cat back in Las Vegas kills a lot of birds, but these chickens were considerably bigger, and they had a vicious gleam in their eyes. I bet they'd go for your eyes if you got too close.
