The post office has no idea (or turns a blind eye) what kind of bird is in that box, they've approved for game fowl. Mango came via USPS, all the way, from a breeder, that may not know it's illegal. Mango did not go on any airline. He simply went from one state, to the next, via USPS. Took about 48 hours, and he did not have any water, the whole time. Airline rules are... anyone picking up the bird, must bring their I.D., and be the person listed as the "sent to" on the bird's box. No one can "pick up the bird" from the airline, and put it on a mail truck. It's simply illegal to put a non-game bird... or a parrot... on a mail truck, at any point in the destination, from what I understand. Also... if the bird was flying, at any time... I would be charged accordingly. I cannot believe that my local post office would/could travel 10 hours round-trip, to pick up my bird from the airport, without my I.D., and not charge me for that.
I didn't know any of this, when I purchased Mango... but, I know, now, because I'd like to breed birds... and, I've been doing research.
