    I wish I could bring them over myself! [​IMG]

    I could send eggs, but I have never sent any to Hawaii. I'm sure someone else will chime in and tell us if there are any reasons why we can't. [​IMG]

    I just have mixed breed eggs for sale right now, but they are only $5 / dozen + shipping....what's your zipcode?

    I also havent ever shipped eggs to Hawaii. I doubt there is any reason why we couldnt. You would just need to understand that the eggs might have a rough trip going that far, etc etc.

    Where in HI are you? We have family in Kaneohe.

    You may want to check your laws about getting shipped eggs. One thing for sure the eggs you get need to come from a NPIP Cert. Flock.

    I think you have to have some kind of permit to get them. This is out of the fear them spreading on the island and competing with the native species.

    Which island are you on? I know they have a bunch of silkies at the Honolulu Zoo, you can always give them a ring to see where they got them. I know a guy my dad used to sell German Rollers to mentioned that he raised Seramas (he offered a trade but my mom nixed that one--their neighbors up the hill already had a couple of roosters that *sang* at 4am for her [​IMG]).

    You have to be NPIP certified and have to fill out a bunch of paperwork so they can be imported into the State.

    If I am not mistaken, any form of animal, eggs too can not be imported into Hawaii,as stated above, due to fear of contaminating the very sensitive local fauna on the islands. They are said to be VERY picky about this, though I have heard of some eggs getting threw off eBay. I think that would be by luck though.
    I would definitely check with the local government there before attempting such a transaction, as it may get you trouble!
    In most cases, zoos can do what they want too, as they have quarantine facilities to house their stock till it is certified clear of disease.
    Good luck, but check thoroughly,

    Isn't Kauai overrun with wild chickens? I bet you can get some there!!!!

    Kauai's Wild Chickens and Roosters
    Wild Chickens, roosters and families of baby chicks are everywhere, running through parking lots, backyards, roads, jungles and golf courses. The roosters are usually a beautiful red color, occasionally speckled with white spots. The hens are good mothers, constantly looking after their small chicks. They do not just cock-a-doodle-doo at first light, but all day too.

    The story about where they came from is that early Polynesians and Europeans brought chickens to Kauai. The Filipinos brought the brightly colored fighting cocks, and Walla, the wild chickens. It is said that with Hurricane ‘Iniki, the domestic chickens and fighting roosters were freed from their cages to roam and multiply. On a recent trip to Tahiti, the same wild chickens were everywhere as well, so I question this theory. But why so many??

    Kauai Wild Chicken Recipe

    1 Kauai wild chicken
    1 large onion
    1 bunch seasoning spices of your choosing
    1 large rock
    Salt and pepper

    Put all ingredients into a large covered pot. Simmer over a low flame for several hours. Remove the rock. Discard the chicken. Eat the rock.
