I think you have to get a special box and find out if your post office will ship live birds.  over night shipping I think

You can ship with American Airlines priority shipping.  You will need to have a shipping box that is Airline approved for live birds. The cost will be by weight and size of box. Look at the web site and give them a call.

I just got 2 hens today. You must have an approved box. Then you can ship through the post office, just like sending chicks. You put food and a watery substance like juicy fruit in the box and send it the fastest way possible, overnight if you can.

My hens got here in a day and a half.

On the box it says Horizon Micro Systems for shipping live birds for the Us Postal service.

ph. 800 443-2498

Do a search on byc for shipping birds and you will find some very good info.

Caution it is not cheap: I have paid $40- $60  (including the box)

I shipped a parrot once Delta Dash for $90
