I sent my first ever LIVE birds in the mail yesterday, and was wanting to check and see 'where' they were. I put the label # into the USPS track & confirm thing and it says 'no record'?? Am I doing it wrong?
You don't want the label #, you want the tracking #. You kept a copy of the form, right? It should be a really long number. I'm looking at one now (that I have in my office) and the number is 1Z 205 97W 84 5318 8722. It should be like that. It will say "tracking #"
The USPS is notorious for coming up "no record" on their tracking. It's nearly pointless, but they are fairly decent about getting the package there on time.
You'd be amazed how fast some things can come. I once put in an order at my pro lab at 11 pm. I got it the next day at noon when my regular mail came. I thought maybe they altered the time space continuum to do that.
