    I believe USPS is your only option.

    Air cargo if you are a known shipper. USPS also ships overnight in the proper shipping boxes, the problem with both of these options is they only ship express which means if you are on a Grayhound bus for several days your birds will need to be either taken care of and shipped after you arrive or shipped ahead of time and again taken care of until you arrive. Good luck.
