USHIP your chickens...

    NovaAman Overrun With Chickens

    I have been reading a lot lately about chickens coming off of the postal truck/plane with trauma and then not making it. I am sorry to read those posts, and makes me not want to ever ship that way.

    My dad used to haul things and they'd sometimes transport dogs, cats, rabbits... SO, I am thinking why not chickens? The people who do the animal transport will be taking care of the animal daily and you don't have to worry about the damage a plane will do. Has anyone tried UShip? Just a thought, something to think on next time you have to ship birds.
