    Greetings Everyone!

    I wanted to pass on some new information regarding USPS's shipping of live adult birds... and rather than post this on the various state threads... word will get around, slowly... it was suggested that I start a new thread.

    USPS has revised regulations on shipping of live Adult Birds. According to Domestic Mail Manual 601.9.3.4

    The list of disease-free adult birds that could previously be shipped domestically only included adult Chickens, Turkey's, Guinea Fowl, Doves, Pigeons, Pheasants, Partridges, Quail, Ducks, Geese and Swans.

    Under the revised rule, USPS will allow the shipment of ANY disease-free live adult birds weighing up to 25 pounds.

    The mailer and the mailing must comply with all applicable government laws and regulations.


    While the previously approved list was fairly extensive, and included most if not all of the type of birds the major public would want... it is even better as it now includes Pea Fowl to mention just one...
