In the Brooder

Aloha! My family and I are moving from Hawaii to Las Vegas. We really need to ship our precious babies and are having a difficult time finding an airline to ship them. We have already called and airlines do not consider chickens to be pets; therefore they cannot ride on the plane with us either in the bottom of the plane or in the cabin with us. They need to be shipped in the actual cargo division of the airlines. It's actually a separate division than passenger flights. I have called Alaska Airlines and got conflicting info; one person told me they would for $263 (a price I'd be willing to pay) and another person told me they would not ship them and have not shipped chickens for 8 months. I have called Hawaiian Airlines cargo and they do not ship any animals other than dogs and cats. I have called American Airlines and they said that they will do it for $600. I am hoping I could find another airline that goes from Hawaii to Las Vegas for a cheaper price than $600. If anyone can tell me of another airline that will ship chickens I would greatly appreciate it. I really do not want to use USPS because I'm worried my chickens will not survive survive those conditions.
