    Here are the USPS regulations on shipping adult chickens:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=252070

    They will need to be shipped Express Mail in an USPS approved Horizon poultry shipping box with filters. Express Mail runs $45 and up, depending on the weight of the box. The box itself is about $15.
