I have 2 cockerels I am planning to ship to someone who wants them. (yes it is way too far to drive). I ordered live bird boxes for them and I have talked to the express mail desk. They try to deliver overnight but say it can take 2 nights. The temperature guarantee is 32 degrees to 87 degrees. I have been told to ship them with pine shavings on the bottom and cut open apples (seeds removed). They are well feathered and have been in the coop for a week with night temps at high 40's to high 50's. They are big chickens now so I can only ship one per box Here is the box http://www.fortune3.com/[email protected]/cart.cgi?group=2437 Nervous mom here is worried about how many apples? Will the temp be too low and should I wait for them to be older to ship? will the apples be enough water content for 2 nights? should I put some crumbles in too? suggestions? It's travel to new home or freezer camp. I want to give them a good home and the one I am sending them too is ideal. Just new to shipping birds. Advice welcome!!
