NO Starly today :(

The breeder just called from the airport. Starly can not ship today. She was mistaken about the Boston airport...it does NOT participate in the summer program, and it is too hot to ship. Can you believe this? I feel like I am never going to get this bird.

aww what a disappointment, but on the other hand at least you know your breeder cares about the bird and that it makes it safe to you, which after all is the main thing... hope the heat breaks soon... we are all melting in this mess...lol

So sorry! Better safe than sorry with this heat! You might try shipping at night when it cools off a bit.

Thanks Kristen. We looked into that but all the red eye flights were too long...the breeder doesnt want her to have more than an 8 hour travel time.
