I'm in Florida, USA. I figure a box of dried pine needles probably wouldn't weight too much for shipment.

My brother and I use to travel some what regularly to Florida in which I would stop and fill some small trash bags with needles. Well that stopped and now we are stuck using pine shavings, not as good, but does work.
Not too many pine trees in the desert, there are some but short needles.
It is a good service you two are offering. Thanks

Just whatever the postage on the needles would be. I'll be keeping a small pile for myself but there are plenty as the lot next to me has a ton of pine trees as well.

That is really good of you to share with you're pigeon friends, I know some will be getting in touch as there are others who charge for them.

I don't see a problem charging for them. They have to collect them, probably dry them, then package them, Don't forget about the box price then spend fuel to drive to the PO to mail them. It is no different then ordering needles or stems from a supply house?
I doubt anyone is getting rich here.

gotta point spirit wings, but i do have to buy gas & box to package them. postage is pretty cheap for parcel but you'll get it in a week or two, priority mail is a bit faster but cost more now.
