Thanks everyone!!!! The lady that helped me was the postmaster herself for my local post office. She was super nice!!!!
As far as the newspaper goes I'll probably be taking it up tonight as soon as I'm comfortable they know what their food looks like. The last ones I raised I did that way & never had any problems. They'll be on the pine shavings that's under that paper after that. They'll definitely be off the paper tomorrow morning at the latest.
