How charming you find Maui’s feral chickens (and roosters) depends entirely on where you encounter them. Crossing the road? Charming. Clucking (and crowing) outside your window at 4am? Less charming. Maybe the funniest (and thus among the more charming) places to encounter them is at the beach, and, for whatever reason, they’re usually out in force at Honolua Bay. It’s nice; when you’re not bobbing in the water marveling at the colorful sea life, you can laugh as a hen picks her way between the rocks to peck at some tourist family’s picnic. The very definition of a “what the cluck?” moment.
