    I have someone I am thinking of buying from that's from Mexico. I want to know if the birds will survive the trip and if it's even allowed to ship birds to the U.S. At all.

    You can import, but unless they're exotics, it's probably not worth the time or cost. A truckload of birds might be worth it, but that's definitely not a topic for here.

    Even the Mexicans that live in the US buy their birds in the US.
