A local breeder here just started offering them, not sure where he got the stock, likely Greenfire as they do ship to Hawaii (very few places do...) He is asking $50 straight run so they are expensive. I would love one, but not sure I want to take the chances of getting a cockerel at that price. I live at 2500 ft, so fairly cool here, but the breeder is on the more tropical side of the island, so temperature, I imagine is not a real problem. 😊

yeah, they are pretty expensive through Greenfire too. Obviously being a reputable breeder, Greenfire can afford to charge those prices. However, before I even begin to think about paying that kind of money, I'd like to talk to other backyard flock owners who've actually owned and raised them. Thus, the purpose of my post....

I was responding to the temperature issue that came up, that's all 😊
Point being if you can keep them in tropical Hawaii, then you can probably keep them anywhere.
