Birds, Etc. Shipping Information

 As a mail-order business, shipping is a necessary component.  Nevertheless, we do not attempt or desire to make a profit on shipping, and we actually absorb partial cost on many of the orders.  We, therefore, make every effort to keep these costs low.  This is simply our way of saying, "Thank you for your business!"

Our policy is to ship your order within 7 business days.  If unusual circumstances delay an order more than seven business days after the order is received, you will be notified of the delay.  Although this is a rare occurrence, we appreciate your understanding should this happen.

You have a choice of using UPS or USPS.  If shipped by UPS, a tracking number and insurance will be included in the cost of shipping.  USPS will have a delivery confirmation included, but insurance and a tracking number will NOT be included.  IF YOU CHOOSE USPS, WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE ONCE THE PACKAGE IS ACCEPTED BY USPS.  UPS is usually less costly for most packages over a few pounds, while USPS is typically cheaper for packages weighing a few pounds or less. 

We are not shipping outside of the U.S. due to the high cost of shipping.

 Note:   There are times, such as with extra-large packages,  when UPS or USPS  charges more for shipping than our software determined.  If any additional costs are incurred when shipping your order, instead of adjusting your charges, we will pay the difference ourselves.  The total you receive when you checkout will be your final total.  Once again, this is simply our way of saying, "Thank you for your business!"

If you have a question, please feel free to call us at 512-275-6420.  Since we are set up to do almost all of our business on the internet, e-mailing us your questions at  may get a faster response than leaving a telephone message. 

If you find an error on the webiste, Please let me know by email if you get a chance to.  Thanks!

In case of any errors on the website or miscalculations by the shopping cart on price, shipping costs, or quantities, Birds, Etc. reserves the right to correct the information and cancel any orders that might be effected by the error.
