    I have 3 young doves and one adult hen for sale. The babies will be safe to ship in about a week or two. The doves are $10 each, shipping is $30 for 1-2, $35 for 3-4. The box is $10 (if I had some here, I'd make them free, but I need to order more).

    LOL. Well the babies were still pretty tiny then, but they grew fast.

    The hen is the nestmate of the male you are getting, so her babies are his niece/nephews [​IMG]
    The other single baby isn't related.

    Shipping prices have apparently gone up without me knowing it. Your two actually costed like $27.15 or something like that. Maybe they were just fat? Haha. I just figured it'd be much closer to $20 since I've shipped doves to Cali for about $22 before. Oh well. Next time I will take them to the PO ahead of time to find out exact shipping, but right now I'm out of boxes. More are on their way, I hope.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that yesterday, I've been checking to see how much it would be to ship button quail, and pretty much the only places that would be less than $20 are next door [​IMG] If you have paypal I can send you the difference? You did send them on Monday, right? The stupid P.O. didn't get them today...they're so slow [​IMG]

    ETA: I'd wondered if the hen was related, she looks a lot like the pic of the male you sent me [​IMG] I think I'll pass, I'd really like to get some that are not related so I don't have to worry too much about inbreeding.

    It was pouring sheets of rain Monday morning and I was running a bit late, so I got them in the mail Tuesday. They said guaranteed by Thursday at 3pm. But I don't see why they wouldn't be there in the morning!

    Unfortunately we don't have paypal, but it's alright [​IMG]

    They made it today, all nice and healthy. They seemed a bit shocked when I put them in their cage, but I have seen them eating and drinking. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how much smaller they are than pigeons, so I will need to make some adjustments to their cage. That should be interesting [​IMG]
