Now that I have some pen raised birds mounted for sale, I have never shipped any and was wondering what is the best way to pack a standing duck for shipment where it wont get ruined? Pak mail charges an arm and a leg, I want to do it myself.

If your birds are mounted on wood place bird in your package and on the outside bottom you want to have 2 washers and 2 drywall screws
min. screw into box and wood until tight. Fill the box bubble wrap
or shipping popcorn. I have been shipping birds and fish like this
for 15 years and havent lost one yet. LOL
I dont like packing material on feathers, so heres another way, I hope just as good. I reinforce the corners of the box so it cant crush. I hot glue and screw wood down them. Then I use a cross peice or two. Scrap press board on two sides helps. Then the mount is suspended, but no need to "pack" it with filler. Good luck.
But I just posted something under the "habitat" section that has something to do with packing bird mounts.
It's under the "cracked resin" post.
