    Morning friends!

    Is anyone looking for a bird today? No specifics but I just got an email at work that the wichita postal plant got a bird in with no label, nothing to identify it in any way. Probably express mail but now has no label.

    If anyone is missing one or shipped one, pm me so we can get this bird home.

    Quote from the PO

    We opened up the box and it is a chicken with black and bronze feathers and a red head. We put some water in the box and it is making noises. There is some seed in the bottom of the box.​

    Bird was reunited this afternoon with its Wichita area owner.

    Wichita area customer had picked up a rooster yesterday, but another box that was supposed to be with it was missing. The shipper said the boxes had been duct taped together and apparently were separated somewhere along the way through Fed-Ex.

    This box had duct tape on it too, so they were pretty sure it had gotten to the right home.

    Lesson learned - label both boxes!

    But it was a great day for at least a few postal workers who had a part in this happy ending.
