At the airport priority is given to guaranteed methods of shipping (FedEx 2nd & Next Day) while USPS will be given last priority. On a Monday or Tuesday following a long holiday weekend the airport will be full of shipments from purchases made over the last three days. USPS shipments can take 7 to 10 days to arrive as they are set aside (usually in another room or even just outside on the tarmac) until the guaranteed shipments are cleared out.
We don't want your feeders to be put aside and so we disable USPS to limit the time your package will be en route to you.
USPS will be visible again after the holiday.
It is so important to us that your feeders reach you in a timely manner safe, alive, and healthy ready for you to feed your loved animals. We appreciate your kind understanding and patience.
Thank you so much, and happy Columbus Day!!

Molting is a natural part of a chicken’s life cycle. It happens at the end of egg laying season and signals that the body put energy into growing new feathers. For many new chicken owners, the molting process may be shocking! Coming out to a balding, non-egg laying chicken often times triggers panic. But [...]
Many of us have wondered, while watching those beautiful bluebirds seen fluttering around the trees, if it were possible to somehow bring them closer to fully appreciate their intriguing and majestic nature. Maybe some of us have even seen the spark of wonder in our children’s eyes as they watch them soar around, making us want to give [...]
