Have you noticed? There are less chickens roaming the streets these days. Where did all the chickens go?

Arnaud and Naja Girard, owners and editors of the new, digital, Key West the Newspaper (The Blue Paper) previously reported for the former Key West The Newspaper, Key West’s longest running independent weekly, published by Dennis Reeves Cooper, Ph.D., from January 1994 until November 2012. The Girards are perhaps best known for their discovery of and extensive research surrounding the US Navy’s 1951 claim of ownership of Wisteria Island but are also responsible for top investigative stories including breaking news coverage of the highly controversial in-custody-death of Charles Eimers on Thanksgiving Day 2013, the catastrophic police tasing of Matthew Shawn Murphy, and the property tax scandal involving Balfour Beatty to name a few. Arnaud and Naja have lived in Key West since 1986.

  1. Interested stuff. As a Raccoon, we take out a lot of their eggs. Delicious stuff…

    It’s my experience that very soon it could be a drought and you won’t see a lot of them for a few months or more. Welcome to the arrival of the hawks. Little and medium size chicks are a favorite delicacy of theirs too…

    If there is a pack of little chicks running around with a hen say out in the open at Mallory Square, you can bet within 30 minutes there will be almost no chicks runing around with momma…

    • We had a raccoon at our house in the Meadows. I would go into the kitchen every morning to find that the cat food had been tossed all over. I couldn’t figure out what was doing it so I setup a deer cam that I had. Turns out there was a raccoon coming in through the cat door. We were fortunate that he was only eating the cat food.

  2. Other than they been a part of Key West do they actually serve a useful purpose ? What are they eating ? Do they perhaps actually help KW in any way other than free eggs ?
