Free Range Chickens


Of course, there are a lot more things I could write about in regards to Key West, but we have to move on–if only because my pictures from Harry Potter World are taunting me! One last thing before I wrap up Key West: The Chickens.  I promised you a post about chickens, and well, I wanted to save the best for last.

Talk about livin’ the life: the chickens in Key West are given free range–literally.  They are everywhere.  They go everywhere and they do pretty much what ever the heck they please (anyone else now have the opening scene to West Side Story in their heads??)

The chickens have become so popular that everywhere you go, you can easily find tons of Key West souvenirs with chickens on it.  And why not?  It’s fun, it’s crazy–it’s totally Key West!  To anyone who’s been there, they have become almost as iconic as the Bouy and Mile 0 Marker!

You will find The Free Range Chickens of Key West doing a wide variety of tasks, such as:

Chickens who patrol for litter.

Chickens who patrol for litter on the sidewalks!


Chickens who greet tourists!


Chickens who sell Trolley Tours!


And even chickens who hand out information!

Poultry in motion, indeed!
