    Hi all!
    I have found what seems to be a nice home for one of my roosters. I am getting some resistance from the post office and my DH about shipping him. Has anyone been successful or had any serious complications? I am thinking about using a trucking person I know to deliver him. The distance is central Kansas to eastern Texas. Any advice? He is a very good rooster and I don't want to hurt him.

    Just order a horizon single stall box from this guy
    Call your postoffice and make sure you can ship live animals and make sure you can ship to the persons zipcode. Find out what time the truck leaves the post office and have the rooster there about 1 hour before the truck leaves. He will be sent express mail and for a full grown rooster, the shipping will be around $60.

    Put some wood shavings in the box and cut up an apple for him to snack on.

    Too bad it's not NE Texas. I'll be heading down to Idabel this next weekend and could have driven him down that far.
