If you have ever been to Kauai, you know that there are chickens and roosters everywhere and they can become quite a nuisance. Here on the Big Island, many people also complain about them.
After constantly trying to get the County of Kauai to assist them with the chicken and rooster problem in their neck of the woods, Kauai residents Branden and Natasha Shumate devised a plan to take care of the problem themselves.
“www.RoosterTraps.com, started in August 2008, is one of many growing small businesses ran by Natasha & Branden Shumate, from Kauai. This particular business is beginning to benefit the island.”
After experimenting with different trap designs and sizes, the Shumates found that a 36″X30″X30″ trap was the perfect size to do the trick! Their product has been a hit with residents and business owners in Hawaii. “Customers are reporting with great feedback and they have been catching droves of chickens and roosters!” Said Shumate
The price for one of these traps is $159.00 and when I asked the Shumates what the price for shipping to the Big Island was, they said that think it’s about $35.00, however it is free shipping on Kauai.
You folks are probably thinking… Ok Damon… How much you getting paid for this blog… Truth be known… nothing… I just hate these damn birds and I hope my neighbors might see this.
Mr. Shumate did offer to link my blog to his online site, however, I told him he could just send me some “Smoked Chicken”.
You can check out the site at RoosterTrap.com and the contact information is there as well.
I’m amazed they don’t have a link to KFC on their site somewhere.
P.S. They did mention that the Humane Society on Kauai accepts the chickens for $5.00 a “head” and that the Humane Society Euthanizes them in a “humane” manner… I prefer my smoked chicken with the head chopped off though.
The Shumates notified me that they are offering a 50% off shipping of the traps to all Big Island residents who mention my blog to them when ordering. I guess you would have to order through the phone to get that discount though.
