    I have a nice little trio of buff ameraucanas in my garage that need to find a new home. The pullets are about 8 weeks old and the rooster is about 10.

    I will have pictures posted later tonight. They are a very nice looking group. All have had their marek's vaccinaton also.

    My asking price is $40.00. Boxes for shipping are $10.00 and actual shipping price. I will only ship to next day service as they are too small to survive a two day trip.

    Quote:I'll get back to you on that. I'm trying to look it up on the computer, but it keeps saying there is an error. I don't ship from my post office, I take the birds into Spokane as it takes an extra day because of the 10 mile difference....???

    Sorry I didn't post pictures to all as one of my horses colicked last night and I had to take her down to WSU.

    Gary,

    It is two day delivery to your zip, but I checked the zip for Columbia and it is one day there.

    Thanks. This is a great place to ship from, because I can put the birds on the truck to the Columbia center and they go right to the Airport. But recieving them is a different matter. The truck from the central PO leaves for the daily run before the plane gets to the Columbia Airport, so they sit in Columbia for a day, and go out the next day. If I could see well enough to drive there I would go get them , but I can't, so that's that.

    How did you find the times for Express Mail shipping? My PO always makes me call a day in advance to find out how long it will take to ship.

    If I could have a rooster and it was safe to ship them all this way I would get these!

    It will ask you on the next page the size of the box you are sending. You can check this page for the dimensions on most approved shipping boxes:

    I alway guestimate what the weight is. I basically just use it to see if it is one or two day delivery. If it comes up two day, then I look for a larger city near the original location and put that zip code in.
