Mailing Birds

Yes, that title means exactly what you think it means.  I was at the post office today and there was a sign on the wall that said “Packing for Birds.”  And I asked the post office lady and she said, yes, you can mail birds.

I am astounded.  I had no idea you could do this.  She told me that they aren’t supposed to accept anything exotic, but that people mail chickens and poultry all the time.  Apparently packages of baby chicks come through their office all the time.  (Why yes, I do live out in the middle of nowhere, how did you guess?)

So, send me your address.  Because I want to mail someone a bird really badly now.
