Shipping will go to $120.00 !


I just got an e-mail from Pigeon Depot, shipping costs have gone "way up".
This will kill buying / selling pigeons and having them shipped through the post office as well as sellers of other goods.

Hello Pigeon Depot family.

PigeonDepot.com has maintained the $55 shipping for the last few years but with the new shipping cost we cannot ship nor can the sellers ship for $55. Pigeondepot is changing the shipping fee to $120. The website will be updated to reflect the new shipping charges.

On 23-Jun-2019, USPS has changed the shipping costs on packages including live birds. USPS now weighs the box and then takes the dimensions of the box. The new shipping fees are roughly more than double to ship than the old charges. It used to cost roughly $55 and now costs around $120. The AU is working with lobbyist to reach out to officials within USPS to begin dialog on something mutually benificial. So hopefully this is a short term situation. There are also several groups working on smaller shipping boxes as well which would reduce shipping costs. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or (208)220-2319.

Thank you,

Smaller shipping boxes ? , unless you get less birds, Packing the birds in a smaller box is a bad idea imo.
