    Hey y'all! I'm finally home and getting ready to start my flock.... I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and I want to get my chicks locally, but it seems to be anywherere here that can provide the breeds I'm looking for. Which are Brahmas, Jersey Giants, and Cochins. If anyone in Hawaii has these breeds, or knows where I can start the process. I am fully aware that I am probably looking at some insane shipping costs ... But that's the cost of living in paradise I guess. :)
    I look forward to reading all the posts and hearing from every one!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] There are members here form Hawaii and I remember one was talking about importing hatching eggs/chicks... Have a look or start a thread in the Where am I Where are You section:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    and see if you can find your "locals". If they can't help you I'd suggest asking in this section:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16/chicken-breeders-hatcheries

    I know there is a hatchery in the US that ships internationally, but I can't remember which breeds they had. I'll see if I can find the link for you. Found it:
