Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Race horses past their prime are put out to stud or just become scenery in some green pasture.

You can really turn a phrase. This one makes my day. I was chased by a cicken once -- they can be very nasty.

Slugs, they also eat slugs.
I wonder if you turned them all loose in Hilo if they would eat those little Kokie frog things?

If they didn't and you wanted to get rid of them... just tell the locals that they were good to eat... and the season was closed.

Don't you even care about the Save the Endangered Green Chicken society's efforts at creating a sanctuary in Waikiki for retired chickens? What's with the double standard here? How about the society for the preservation of highway cruising dead scum marinated whale lard? After the last article I ran out and spent all my money helping the myriad turtles around Oahu from becoming extinct. I can't afford to support any more worthy causes.

Gross. It makes me want to use a knife and fork instead of my fingers.

Will that make you feel any better?

Mr. Memminger, thank you for sharing our story with your readers. I could find names for all the hens, because they are all individuals with personalities.

Coq au vin is the highest honor I can think of bestowing upon those hens. Yummo.

We launched a rescue right after your article. In a week founded home for 580 hens. We re-homed 80 of the hens to free range adoptive homes last Saturday. Many of our adoptee have went all out to build hen houses. Some are carpenter and contractors so the hen houses range from nice coop, to huge doll houses to magnificient mansion.

Stewing chickins going for 50 cents to a $1?
Is that per chicken or pound?
Any red hair hens with red earlobes? Looking for some brown eggs.
