bird-tagShipping birds to my Cochrans Taxidermy is easy and cost effective. Place your bird in double plastic bags and keep frozen until shipping. When shipping to us simply place your plastic bagged bird into a small box of loose newspaper to both insulate and protect the bird during shipment.

Always ship out on Mondays or Tuesdays by UPS or FEDEX to insure no weekend layovers. Standard ground service is fine during the cold winter months. During the warmer summer months, 2nd Day Air is recommended. We will notify you by phone or email that your bird has arrived. Never use the Post Office.

All migratory birds such as ducks, geese, dove and woodcock must have the hunters full name, address and date of kill. This information must accompany your birds.

Please download this bird tag here and fill out correctly and completely. Print out this tag and send it with your birds.

I have secure shipping and boxing methods. I ship back your completed mount back to you by Fed Ex Ground Insured. Shipping cost vary depending on your location. You are only charged current/exact shipping / boxing.

Terms: I do not require a deposit. There is no need to secure payment info, until your bird is scheduled next to be mounted. When it is ready, I will photograph the piece and send you a copy by email. At that time payment is required and the bird will be shipped!

We accept money orders and personal checks. You can contact us if needed here.
