    I have received a live duck, I have never mailed one, you need a special box for it - try Cutler SUpply, I think the box charge is $10 plus shipping, it could getpricey, Ithink I paid $37 for shipping from Maryland to NY - got here in one day, but I would never go across country

    You need to read this BYC Sticky that covers shipping via USPS and what it takes to send a live bird.
