Wild Chickens. The term seems harmless enough. Chickens can surely peck and I have known a few that will chase you across the yard; but can chickens really be dangerous? Simply put, Yes. When they are feral chickens they can be. Chickens were meant to be in a barnyard. They were meant to be cared for by a farmer and penned safely into a hen house or screened yard. They were meant to be somewhat docile creatures that provide eggs. They were meant to be safe. But when chickens are left to fend for themselves in the wild, they can become a real problem. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we face here in Hawaii.
