Shipping Information: 

Here in Michigan we start shipping in October and ship through the middle of May. There are periods of time in January and Feburary that it get too cold here to ship. We also stop shipping from the middle of December until January first, as shipments can get delayed with all the holiday mail. We do most of are shipping via Express Mail through the U. S. Post Office. We also can ship via Air Freight although a very fast service this runs considerably more than Express Mail.                                                                                                      

Shipping costs are a flat rate that covers the cost of the shipping containers and the postage. Please be patient when waiting for a shipping date, birds can handle cold weather much better than warm weather and we will not ship if the weather may jeopardize the birds safety. We always ask you include a phone number for us to put on the shipment as most post offices will call even before they open in the morning if asked to let you know your shipment has arrived. This is very useful service they provide for us and we recommend you do not ask for any reimbursements for shipments arriving late as long as the birds are all right.

We guarantee live delivery to your post office.

Express Mail is either next day or 2nd day delivery depending on where we are shipping to. We use only post office approved shipping containers which are made by Horizon. We ship on Monday or Tuesday to make sure the birds arrive before the weekend, and do not ship during a week that the post office is closed for a day. Weather is a big factor in shipping, it has to be suitable on both ends. We will contact you before shipping to make sure you are available to pick the birds up. We recommend contacting your post office to let them know you have live birds coming in.
