We cannot account for jerk post offices. The pigeon fits all postal regulations and is technically legal to mail. That being said, out of the 5 years we have been selling this kit, we've only had two people tell us their specific post office refused the shipment of the pigeon. By purchasing this kit, you acknowledge that your post office may lack a sense of humor and that they may not let you mail the pigeon from their location.

Pigeon Kit FAQ
Wait, I can actually mail it without putting it in a box and it gets there?
Yes, really. And Yes, it actually gets to its destination. It may gain some scuffs along the way, but it makes it to the recipient.
How does this actually work without putting the pigeon in a box?
It violates no postal regulations. The pigeon is not hazardous, fragile, or perishable. It weighs under 13oz., so it is still considered first class mail. Just because it isn't a rectangle doesn't mean it can't be mailed.
Can I mail it internationally?
No, unfortunately this pigeon does not fit within International postal regulations.
How much postage does it take to mail the bird?
It costs $3.09 to mail it First Class domestically. We give you the postage for the first mailing in the kit. The instructions also have the shipping cost listed for repeat mailings.
Does it actually fit in a corner mailbox?
Yes! Just hold it by the legs and put it back first into the mail slot. You can view the video below of a Pigeon Post being mailed.
