Any breeders out there who ship eggs or chicks to Hawaii?

    Because of the permitting and such, most breeders don't ship to Hawaii, so I am just wanting to see if any do, because pretty much all that is available out here is hatchery stock, gamebirds, and ferals.

    Where did you get your silkies, fluffystuffs? They look a lot better than the ones the feedstore here gets from Ideal poultry.

    Hoovers hatchery told me they shipped chicks to Hawaii but quit because they were being held at the border, and then all the chicks died.

    Quote:A few years ago I got a few from a lady on Oahu. Back then they would allow chicks to be shipped through the post office but now you need a special box. Then I got some from a small feed store that orders in bulk. I am not sure where it came from. I would really like different stock but I don't know anyone that has them here. So my Oahu hen hooked up with the feed store roo and now I have 11 chicks from her. [​IMG]

    Yes, they do (as do all the other hatcheries), but they are hatcheries not breeders, so their stock isn't all that great.
