    I think the hardest part about shipping birds is getting up the nerve to do it, it's really not that hard. Though the quail that quaillady got did have a bit of a rough trip but that was due to some idiot at the post office not scanning the box. We were worried to death that they had been in Louisville for 24+ hours and they arrived safe and sound when I expected them to. Of course, this didn't correspond to the time given by the P.O., but I've yet to have an express package arrive next-day. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your birdies mh, I'm sure they'll be just fine [​IMG]

    I ship live birds a lot. Shipped 2 pairs of buttons and chicken chicks yesterday. It really isn't bad.

    Quote:I've always been curious....................When "live" birds are shipped ............ whether they're chicks or grown birds..........is there a "this side up" label on the shipping box, and if so, how critical is it to adhere to this rule.......and how dependable is it to have it followed?

    It's been taking 2 days on some of these shipments...Poor buttons going to NY...hope they get there alright. Other two shipments arrived safe and sound. One to Texas and one to Cali)...Now, the chick boxes are tough, you have to print out little labels that say live birds, the phone number of the individual you are sending to, the fun stuff...with the Horizon boxes they are labeled pretty well, hard to have the birds on the wrong side [​IMG]

    HEHEHEHEHEHEHHEHEHE! GO DRINK A BEVERAGE OF YOUR CHOICE AND RELAX, AS HARD AS IT IS -- WORRYING WONT CHANGE THE OUTCOME.

    FOR WHAT ITS WORTH, I HAVE BOTH SHIPPED AND RECIVED COUNTLESS NUMBERS OF LIVE BIRDS, IT DOES GET A TAD EASIER OVER TIME..... UNLESS THEY ARE RARE AND EXPENSIVE [​IMG]

    I HAVE A TRIO OF LADY AMHURST PHEASANTS BEING DROPPED AT PO TOMARROW MORNING (IN BOUND) I TEND TO GET MORE GIDDY ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF NEW BIRDS RATHER THAN WORRY OVER THEIR TRIP.
