the shipping process
A Specialist will first look to see where the closest airport is to ship your bird. (We only ship birds on airlines that implement a Pet Safe Program) After choosing an airport, we will begin coordinating all schedules & considerations. We will then book your flight and send you an email itinerary of all of the times, flights, schedules & pick up/Delivery location. Once all of the paperwork is filled out and your bird is checked in at the airport, you will receive an email and/or phone call letting you know how everything is going. During the day of the flight, we will continually be updating you on the progress of the flight schedules until your bird arrives safely in your arms.
Your bird will arrive in a brand new airline approved cage/crate with absorbent bedding and a food & water dish.
All parrots are flown in the under portion part of the aircraft which is a safe temperature controlled environment.
The price will cover all expenses except for an updated health certificate. (This would be paid by the purchaser and/or the breeder).
Any fees owed because of flight cancellations will be the responsibility of the individual who receives the bird.

We will coordinate flight times with our customer a hours/days in advance before the bird is being shipped (weather permitting). The customer is supplied with the airline, flight number(s), air waybill number, and flight arrival time prior to departure.
It is recommended that the customer arrives at the airport no later than the expected flight arrival time so that your bird is not waiting at the airport for any length of time.
In the case where delivery is to be done at home, the customer is recommended to be at home at the specified hour of delivery.
We will contact our customer once again on the day of shipment before the bird departure from our Farm/aviary. A return call, text or e-mail to Welch Exotic Birds Farm letting us know that the bird(s) arrived safely is greatly appreciated.
All sales are final when the birds are shipped. There are no returning the birds. We have a 72 hour limit of notification, after delivering of the birds, of any death at the point of delivery, specified on the order. Immediate inspection is necessary to ensure damage didn’t occur during shipping and the birds are alive at delivery. We will replace the dead bird or refund the cost of the bird immediately, but not the shipping cost.
