    Justusnak is sending Stubs to me but I would rather pay ten dollars for priority mail then thirty dollars for express. Priority mail is 2 day shipping so do ya'll think he could be in a box for 2 days with a watermelon rind?

    Is this one of her rescues? I'd shell out the 30 bucks...if he's one of her rescues I think he's been through enough!!

    I agree pay the extra 30 bucks so you know he will be okay. It will cut down on the stress factor.

    Would you like it if someone stuffed YOU in a box and gave you a watermelon rind and expected you to survive for 2 days? And also, end up upside down???
    I bet not.
    My chickens don't even like watermelon!
    You could at least give him an oxygen tank or something?
    And what about water?
    He might DIE if he doesn't have water!
    Is the crate wooden, or cardboard?
    I got an important package in the mail and it was half crushed!
    What would the mailman do if he heard crowing!
    He'd be mighty surprised!
    These are just some of the things that MIGHT happen in the mail.
    That's all!

    I don't think you can ship birds by Priority Mail by law. It must be Express Mail.

    I just think it is better to get him as fast as you can, that's all. I'm sure Deb will mark the box correctly to notify everyone that there is a live animal in there. Deb would not do anything to jeapordize the health of stubs as hard as she has worked to rehabilitate him. I just think priority is better. [​IMG]

    That's fine!!! I guess I'll have to pay the thirty bucks then, this is how bad I want him.

    I would flat out refuse the sale if you even asked me to consider that.
    But that is just me.

    Yes, pay the $30. Stubs has been thru enough and if he is 1/2 the bird mine are from Deb, you'll be glad to get him that extra day early!

    Heck, I'll give you the $30!

    Good luck!
