SHIPPING MATURE BIRDS
SUCCESSFULLY throughout North America and abroad is a skill we
have been perfecting over the past four decades. When done
properly, adult ducks and geese travel very well.
SHIPPING SEASON: To
protect them from over heating, we ship adults only during cool
weather. When we start shipping each fall depends on the
weather, but our main shipping season typically starts in October
and runs through February or until we are sold out. Because
ducks and geese have some of the best down coats on the planet,
shipping in cold weather is not a discomfort to them.
HOW SHIPPED: Adults are
shipped throughout the U.S. mainland via USPS Express Mail
and will be delivered to your post office.
SHIPPING CONTAINERS: The
special USPS approved adult bird shipping boxes we use come in three
sizes. The larger ones cost $26-$28 each and will safely
accommodate 6 to 8 Bantam ducks, 3 to 4 larger ducks, 2
Shetland geese, or one larger
goose. The medium size boxes cost $16 each and will hold up to
4 bantam ducks. The smallest
box costs $10 and will hold a pair of bantams.
EXPRESS MAIL CHARGES:
Express Mail charges are based on weight of shipment and your zone. Express Mail
charges per box typically are between $60 and $170, depending on the
weight of the shipment as well as the distance from Oregon. Call or e-mail us for shipping
charges on specific orders. (When requesting a shipping
quote, please be sure to include your mailing address.)
