In addition...only ship birds on Monday or Tuesday and never, ever during a week that has a holiday during which the PO is closed.

You can't just show up at the Post Office with birds to be mailed. You must call a head of time and make a reservation. The Post Master can tell you when you make the reservation, what time the birds will leave the Post Office, so you can arrive at check in a couple of hours prior to that time so the birds won't need to stay in the box any longer than necessary.

When I have shipped birds, I took them directly to the Post Office near the airport to cut their box time down even more.

just read this post and awesome information. I haven't personally sent any birds through the mail yet but do look forward to doing so in the near future. This was very helpful. Thanks!

Great info Charis Smile
What do you think about shipping birds internationally? Won't be safe isn't it?

I don't think it's a good idea.

Personally...I don't think mailing any bird, to any location, is a good idea.

I don't think it would be a good idea either.
