(Columba Livia Domestica)
FANCY BREEDS ARE ALLOWED ONLY ON OUR SHIPMENTS DIRECT TO POLAND.
THE COST FOR OUR USA QUARANTINE AND EXPORT TO BELGIUM AND POLAND IS
$200 PER BIRD, plus any unforseen incidentals.
(Please Note: Incidentals are something we have previously absorbed in the past to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars in past shipments over the years, and we did not bill clients the differences in those costs. As the ability to ship overseas gets more difficult, challenging, and costly, due to world economic conditions, we are unfortuntely left with no choice and cannot continue absorbing these costs moving forward).
Shipments can run into many challenges that are beyond our control. Goverments can and do disagree on paperwork, and the birds can be refused entry into another country, which in turn requires birds to either be sent back to the USA and undergo mandatory import quarantine, or they can order to have all the birds euthanized in the foreign country, without compensation. If birds are not euthanized in the foreign country, this will cost on average, $16,000 to $35,000 per shipment to have them returned, if the birds leave our country and must return back to the USA. We can only have the birds returned IF there is space available at the USDA Animal Import Center. If no space is available, birds will be humanely euthanized and not returned to the USA.
Confirmed International Flights can get cancelled 1-2 hrs prior to departure, without notice, which requires the entire shipment of birds to be sent back to us, along with us being required to retest the birds, quarantine birds for another 7-14 days, pay new broker fees and freight costs all over again, which are non-refundable, schedule difficult appointments and inspections with both the Vet and The USDA, to then have new International Health Certificates issued, etc. These types of incidentals which do happen domestically, before the birds even leave the country, can cost an additional $5,000-$7,000, per shipment, as we have experienced. It also may take two separate attempts to ship the birds due to unforseen circumstances, like last minute flight cancellations, pilot strikes, immediate live animal embargoes, etc..
If there are any incidentals, we will simply divide the total additional shipment costs by the total number of pigeons on a given shipment. This is the fairest way to offset these costs moving forward. If you would prefer to not have your birds returned to the USA, and they are placed in these difficult circumstances overseas, due to a rejected shipment, and you do not want to pay these additional costs below to have them returned and basically re-imported, then the very last remaining option available would be to have the birds euthanized, and not returned to the USA. An additional incidental cost will always vary based on the location and where the birds are ultimately going, and can be in the range of anywhere between $150-$300 extra per bird.
BY HAVING US QUARANTINE AND EXPORT YOUR BIRDS, YOU ACCEPT ALL THE INHERENT RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS, FROM BEGINNING TO END.

In an ever changing shipping environment, we always strive to stay up to date with ongoing changes that take place in the commerical live animal shipping world.
The following birds are in fact regulated as poultry. They include the following:
If your pet bird is listed above, it does NOT qualify for travel as a pet bird.
(Please take the time to read this important information below)
We offer private quarantine sessions (non-race related) overseen by our USDA, beginning (Oct 15th through January 31st), when we are not servicing or performing quarantines for international races around the globe.
We require a minimum of +20 birds in a quarantine session. The individual in the importing importing country must apply for, and obtain the necessary import permit for us, before we can do any work associated with private quarantine services, for birds originating from the USA.
We recommend that you have the necessary import permit approved and issued from your country, prior to sending any birds to our export quarantine facility. This will prevent any potential delays in the process.
Please also allow for flexibility on the export dates as things always change daily with exporting and flights with the various carriers we work with.
The pricing is dependent on a host of factors, which involve vet bills, daily quarantine fees of $5.75 per bird per day, feed and supplements, vaccination costs, exam fees, mandatory necropsy and testing fees which can range anywhere between $120-$150 PER BIRD (when necessary), ground transportation fees to DENV airport, or DFW Airport, or LAX, airline fees and freight brokerage logistics fees, shipping crates, administrative fees, quarantine fees based on 21 to 30 days, inspection fees, blood testing fees/and or PCR testing for both AI and Newcastle at the approved state lab we use ($35 per test per bird -$70 total per bird, for both tests is required) vet visits by our board certified Avian Vet, International Health Certificate Fees, and final USDA signoff approvals and endorsements.
Please Note: Flexibility is necessary with exporting live animals. If birds are delayed due to import permit circumstances, testing results delays, and we are required to keep the birds at our facility longer than the typical 30 days as a result of this, additional fees of $5.75 per bird per day as modeled after the USDA rates, will be added on for those delays. Any other avian species will have slightly different pricing, taking into account the size of the birds, breed, the quarantine environment required for special accommodations, feed, testing requirements, etc.
