Just wondering if there are any Oahu, Hawaii breeders out there? If so, what breeds do you have? I'm looking for hatching eggs. Not interested in gamebirds or fighting chickens
I've also been looking to get some backyard egg-layers... The only hatchery I've found so far (Asagi Hatchery) carries only three breeds: White Leghorns, Cornish Rock, and a dubiously named breed they call "Brown." Since I am looking for a docile breed that is good with children, I haven't gone to check them out yet...
I did, however, find a website called "My Pet Chicken" that will sell day-old chicks and mail them Express to Hawaii, and they handle all the Dept of Agriculture import permits. They have quite a large variety of chickens, including docile, productive layers. However, they have a minimum order of eight chickens, which is more than I can handle...
Searches on craiglist and the like have not been productive for me, so I will keep searching.
Hi there, I am trying to find a baby chick a good home! I rescued it from a dog's mouth in the park and nursed him back to perfect health. He is so cuddly and adorable but is getting very lonely. He keeps looking at the mirror in his box and trying to snuggle with his reflection. I live in a condo and can't keep him and would love to find him a home. I don't know if you or someone you know might have baby chicks approximately his age right now? He/she is around 3-4 weeks old. I put up a craigslisting if you'd like to see pics:
Thanks so much!
I am just starting off, but I will be breeding 3 breeds. True rumpless Araucanas(blue egg), Cream Legbars(blue egg) and Black Copper Marans(Dark brown eggs). If everything goes well, I hope to have some cream legbar chicks in March, 2014. Others to follow soon after.
