The English sentence seems absolutely bizarre. What about the German one?

Hmm, since the advent of a postal service a couple of hundred years ago this might not be the most natural thing to say ;-) Think Harry Potter: I'll send you my answer per owl ;-)

I'm with you. I may send you a response by passenger pigeon, but I don't think I'll receive a response "per bird!"
