About the BSOA

The Bird Shipper’s of America consists of a group of organizations with one common goal – to improve the Backyard Poultry Industry.

We Unite American Hatcheries that Have One Common Mission:

  • We assist in educating consumers on best practices in caring for their birds and fowl
  • Educate consumers on the risks of Salmonella and encouraging best practices to mitigate those risks
  • We work hand-in-hand with the United States Postal Service and other carriers to improve shipping and delivery
  • Establish relationships with industry leaders and experts to bring new insights to the industry

Together, we share a common passion for the backyard poultry industry, and we believe that working together will create safe environments, safe shipping, and safe experiences for all poultry owners.
