    PLEASE be serious about shipping, get a carrier and ship
    correctly! for birds saftey and airlines, Delta is by far
    the best and cares very well for birds while shipping. Be
    patient, ask questions and be calm.Yes insure there is
    always risk of death, accident ect..... If not then get in
    the car drive 1/2 way to met or dont sell birds.
