    Would a pair of dewlap toulouse and a pair of white sebbies make it more tempting?

    There is shipping via USPS AND there is www.uship.com.

    Then, there is the possibility that a friend and I would go to Ohio to pick up some peafowl...............

    I have to talk to her and see if she is serious about making that trip. They have juvenile white peafowl for nice prices. Guess I'd better check and see if she wants to drive or ship.

    Wow, that is a very long trip, I was just looking, it is 7 hours for us to get to long Island, I didn't think it was that long, but wow.

    How mush are you asking for the Sebbies? I saw the Price for the dewlap toulouse.....

    Shipping would be very high for geese, I am sure, I have never had live birds shipped.

    Yeah, I paid over $150 EACH goose to ship via USPS (with the box)for the Sebbies from Georgia to NY.

    I'm asking the same for the Sebbies as the Dews if I can get it. I don't know about the current market, I just know I am going to lose my butt. I just bought too many.

    BUT, if you check out UShip, you can sometimes do much better because you can usually find a hauler who just wants to pick up something the fill up his horse trailer or the back of his van, etc. I've had great luck with it for my dewlaps transports.

    It takes me 7-8 hours to get to Kittanning, PA, when I used to go there. Don't know if you've ever heard of that little town, but it's a trip I've taken several times.

    The Shetlands are not as heavy as the Dewlaps though. I haven't weighed them, so maybe you could do it for more like $150 for BOTH geese, plus boxes. Not sure until I would weigh them and get a zip code check, etc.
