    I notice that I can no longer ship pigeons via USPS online, looks like I have to bring them to Post office and pay full price. I wonder if this is a permanent thing or it is because of the Holidays. It no longer gives me the option on the website to print a label, Anyone know anything more...

    I've always seen birds being shipped with USPS but never the other two...I've received live shipments (fish) from FedEx & UPS and would trust them more than my post office. So, do they have some anti-bird policy or??? :confused:

    I am receiving a pair of birds in a shipment soon and was wondering the best possible way I could make the transition a smooth one? I have never received birds from USPS before and need some pointers on how I can accommodate to their needs!

    I got a call at about 8 AM this morning from the main post office in Santa Ana as I was leaving for work. There is a bird there for me, and they are concerned as there is no delivery service today. Did I want to come pick up the bird? Well, you bet I did. It was delightful to see how...

    I just recieved an email from a fellow fancier, in which he shared the below update. Apparently the USPS was giving out too many refunds. I always thought the guarantee sort of worked to insure that proper attention was given to our birds. Now, if it is a day or two late, well heck....it's still...

    Got a shipping box the other day and when we unwrapped it and put it together this morning, I noticed something new on the box. At least new since the last time I ordered a new box. There's a statement on the bottom front side where the label goes that says the box can not weigh more than 8...
