I'm looking into shipping a bird or 2 to a friend in need of a rooster (silver grey dorking) and wonder what I need to know/do to safely ship the bird to her. from VA to TX. also, I'm not NPIP, does that matter for shipping purposes? the birds haven't hatched yet (due next week), but i'm thinking sending some 6-8 week old cockerels for her to grow and choose which would work with her flock best. I know I need the right box and all, that's not really the question. i just need to know what else i need to do/get/have, whatever.
