I wonder what the postage companies have responded to the OP's Q's
FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL

Another deep dive into the postage delivery system
Get your credit cards ready!
FedEx and UPS are merging. New name will be Fed Up.

Prediction for the future. Amazon will go into the shipping business.

Re: Off the grid Chicken coop

My Rhode Island Red chickens lived happily outside in a plastic unheated coup for two Buffalo NY winters and did not seem to mind. In the summer chickens say cou, cou, cou. In the winter chickens say cold, cold, cold.

Re: Hole Rivets for Two Thin Metal Plates?

Buy a six pack of beer. Drink all the beer. Put a paper or plastic cup in each of the 6 empty spaces of the cardboard six pack holder. Fill each cup with different size rivets. Try different rivets to see which ones work best.

Best to not drink all 6 bottles of beer in one day.
