The only problem with that is the mail order chick (and bee) 
industry. They were fighting a last gasp effort because the postal 
system had said it wasn't going to renew airline contracts for live 
freight after November. 
PETA has decided it's cruel to send animals on airplanes and the 
legal issues to fight them just isn't worth the money the hatcheries 
earn in sales. (Because they're routinely sent via postal system, 
UPS won't handle live freight.) martha
