Our beloved pet rooster has developed a nasty case of bumble-foot. I've got it under control, but I need to keep treating him twice a day- changing bandages etc. The problem? I'm going out of town for 6 weeks. The solution? Reston is going for a ride via USPS Express mail to my new location! Not the best solution mind you- just the most practical. The question is what bird-box size do I use? There are two choices: 20" X 8" X 16 (L x W x H) and 16" x 16" x 16" He would fit (barely) in the first one but would have no room to turn around or flap his wings. In the second he would have plenty of room. If I was taking him myself I would opt for the roomier 16". But since he is being shipped it may *not* be a good idea for him to be loose in larger box? Anyway- if anyone has sent or received adult chickens / peafowl / ducks / etc. through the mail and can offer assistance, I (and Reston) would be grateful. Thanks!
