SO I have been wanting to order some chicks and there is a USPS embargo on live animals being sent through the mail in my zip code and several others. I read some other posts and forums and they seemed to think it was weather related, but it is the fall now and the temps are good for sending chicks. I read somewhere that I could possibly have them shipped to a different zip code,how would I do that? I only live about an hour from a zip code that will receive live animals (craziness) and I would like to just drive up there and pick them up, but I do not fully understand how to just have them shipped to a post office without a physical address. I am having the same problem with bees as well-the local breeders are sold out here for 2 years and I am being forced to order online BUT no one can ship to me!! So frustrating- if you have found a way around this silly rule please let me know!
