Express Mailing of Live birds
SORRY I WILL CAN SHIP
ONLY DOVES, PIGEONS ANY QUAIL BY EXPRESS
I can birds by express mail again.
I have done so recently and all went very smoothly. If you are
interested please read the terms below. First of all I know that
I will not be allowed to mail to all areas in the US. Mailing
to you will depend on your location and zip code. I will need
your complete address and zip code to determine if your area qualifies
for express mail from my area. You may click here to send an email
right now. SEND EMAIL I will
phone in the zip code and the PO will determine if the birds can
be accepted for mailing. That is the first step. If your ZIP CODE
is on the list, I can mail to you.
- Since I have been shipping by airlines for
over a year now I know that is the safest and most risk free
way to ship and receive birds. They arrive in a matter of hours
and there are no losses and essentially no risk to the birds
and buyer. The drawback is expense and hassle. It cost a minimum
$100 to ship by air and you must go to an airport to pick them
up. Shipping by mail is different, while it is much cheaper,
$35-$55 generally, but it is also slower. Birds are in transit
usually at least 24 hours and perhaps even 48 hours. There's
is no question about that. And once in the mail, neither of us
have any control over how long it taks for delivery nor are we
capable of tracking the shipment with any degree of reliability.
- If you want birds shipped by mail you will
have to agree to some acceptance of the risk involved in the
birds live arrival. I will NOT be held fully responsible for
losses nor will I replace just any bird that is lost in transit.
Plain and simple. You want cheaper cost, You must be willing
to accept some of the risk. I have no problems shipping most birds by mail and
I am confident they will arrive in good shape
but if any losses do occur, then we share the losses together
and arrive and some acceptable settlement for replacing the birds.
I WILL NOT refund $, but I am willing to send replacement birds.
- How risky is it? Well
it all depends on the types of birds being shipped and perhaps
the distance they must travel. Both can play a factor in their
safe arrival. If they arrive in 36 hours or less, I feel there
is no risk, and I have shipped birds by mail for many years with
NO problems, If they arrive on time. If they are delayed,
arrive late, or get lost in transit (it can happen but very rare
that it does) then there can be problems with stress and some
losses might occur.
- Birds that do well by Express mail shipping
are, most Doves, Pigeons and Button Quail, These are hardy and
usually endure even long trips with no problems

The express mailing order
is dealt with care, like the delivery of chandeliers. The boxes are marked and placed next
to lamps during the flight with a lighting source nearby in order to keep the
birds company. The boxes act like lamp
