The most cost effective and simplified way to ship birds to my Studio is outlined below.

When you finally collect that “Trophy” bird simply fold the head back against the body, Place it in a sturdy, sealed bag, 1-2 Gallon Ziploc bags work well! Freeze the bird and when ready to ship simply follow the Instructions below:

    1. Find a suitable box, about as big as the bird[s] to be shipped Yet large enough for added insulation/packing
    2. Place the bagged birds on top of a bed of Fiberglass insulation OR crumpled up Newspaper, The fiberglass insulation is superior but Newspaper will work
    3. Cover/Wrap the bird with the Insulation. Make sure the box will close, yet full enough to insulate AND secure/protect the bird.
    4. Print out an Invoice and Federal Tag. (Download links located below) Properly fill out ALL the info, If more than one bird is in the shipment PRINT the Federal Tag and fill out one for EACH bird, Put these items in a Ziploc bag along with the appropriate deposit  and place on top of the insulation before closing the box.
    5. If you find the “pose” you like in one of the Galleries here on the website, right click the large version of the photo and “save as.” Print the photo of the pose and include it with the completed invoice and bird tag in the ziplock bag.
    6. Seal the box shut and ship via FedEx Or UPS, Standard ground is fine during the cold winter months, preferably 2nd day during the warmer months, Call for instructions if needed,  ALWAYS notify me, and ship on a Monday to insure no weekend layovers. Once received I will email or call you that it arrived
    7. **Please do not ship via USPS!
