    I have a question. I received an adult Silkie rooster in a petsmart carrier box. He was completely fine when I received him. Just wondering is this a box that can be used for shipping birds?

    No, it is not suitable for shipping birds thorough the USPS. Approved boxes have weight ratings and bio filters. The filters are a must.
