Bryan will become famous soon enough

I bet you are so excited.

After all this time I have found a breeder in my area that breeds parrotlets on facebook. She posted some pictures of her new batch of babies and my MBS was tingling. There was what looked to be a green pied male that was such an interesting color.

How are you getting Rain home are you driving to get her or is it by airline? I just wondered with the post about USPS lately.

Congrats, Mom!
Your son, Mango, is going to get married to Rain ( Raen?). I sure hope it works out. Got a ' nursery ' ready?

Shipping pet birds by USPS is illegal. The rules that exist are meant for birds such as chickens.

I understand that you say that but there are places that do use USPS here is a quote from one of those places. (Now if they only use that for finch and doves I do not know but they do ship birds using USPS)

I do agree it is bad but there are people doing/offering it as an option is all I am saying

Quote:
WHAT HAPPENS ONCE A LIVE-BIRD ORDER IS PLACED?
  1. Once your order is placed, you will receive an email confirming your purchase along with our 'Bird Care Instructions' to help you prepare for your bird(s) arrival.
  2. The day your order is ready to ship, you will receive 2 emails: 1 with a picture of your bird(s) in their shipping box and a second email with your USPS tracking number. Orders arrive through the post office associated with the zip code of your shipping address. Arrival times take from one (1) to three (3) days once your order has shipped.
  3. After receiving your 2 emails please contact your post office to let them know you have a 'Live Bird Shipment' arriving and ask them to call you as soon as it arrives.
  4. Give the post office your phone number found on your shipping label - the post office is instructed to call you ASAP. (Live Bird USPS orders ship on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of each week to ensure that your birds are never left over a weekend at your post office.)
  5. Please pick up your birds from the post office on the day the post office calls you for maximum bird health. However, if you are unable to pick up your birds in person at the post office, please make arrangments directly with the post office to ensure your birds get delivered to you via the USPS Express Delivery Truck on the same day.
  6. Hook-bills and finches require separate shipping boxes or dividers. If additional funds are required to ship your order, we will contact you for any payment adjustment.
  7. Delta Airlines is currently the carrier being used for shipments of Live Bird air cargo.
  8. Coupon Codes are entered in the 'Order Confirmation' section at the time of checkout. Only one coupon code, including promotions, can be used per order. We ship nationwide including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Hawaiian shipments can only ship by Commercial Air through Delta Airlines to Honolulu. Special handling is required, in addition to extra handling fees. Please call for more information

Oh she's beautiful!!!

Yes people do ship USPS, but it's illegal. I would never buy a bird from someone who made excuses about why they think it's ok, it absolutely is not acceptable.

It is illegal and I would never ship a bird, hamster, or any other small animal USPS! They do not have the proper way to watch or keep a safe temperature for the birds. Recently in this forum someone was supposed to have an overnight delivery of their bird and, if I remember correctly, it took two days!


I almost went into a business deal with a retired USPS employee. Bob and I talked about shipping our products that we were going to cultivate ( we were going to grow special flower bulbs from the land we both owned together) and one of the subjects of shipping budgies came up. He said, " Never ship any bird, except chicks, by USPS. It IS illegal ".


I asked, " Why chickens? " He said that they are agriculture and no guarantees are given for life expectancy. Chicks are easily replaced.



I would choose caution.
