There are some die-hard shorts wearers, but when you said there was some connection to NZ, I was stumped there!

How about Tokelau for a try ('scuse the pun)?

I have found the stamp, but because I'm not participating, I won't post it here.
Hint: It is issued sometime in the 90s.

The crystal ball predicts that clapas is on the money ;)

Question for clapas: with your footnote about "temporary cancellation from 1957", is the crystal ball right to suggest that you mean "postally used and date stamped in 1957" ?

Hmmm, crystal ball was misled by "Try a country that brought out funny shaped stamps."

Apparently moa = chicken, as well as the giant extinct bird of Aotearoa...

Apparently Western Samoa once had relations with New Zealand.

That would have been my next guess after Tokelau.

Yes, you are correct that the country is SAMOA.

Now it should be easy to identify the stamp! (For rugby fans, the jersey colours give it away: black is the New Zealand team colour, and blue is the Samoa team colour.)

Yes, the name "Samoa" comes from this usage, and means "sacred chickens". It derives from a traditional tale from the country:
McKay Fale located in Sauniatu, Samoa wrote:Lu of Uafato

This legend gives us insight into how the word, “SA-MOA” originated.

Uafato is a lovely, remote village located near Fagaloa. Uafato was the home of Lu. It had an ocean full of fish, and a picturesque and lovely waterfall on the central mountain peak with four mountainous peaks on each side of the gorgeous waterfall.

At the bottom of the fall was a beautiful pool which was divided into two sections. One section was for the village water supply and the other was a place to swim and bathe. In Polynesian religion, there are 9 heavens. Each one arched above the former one. The common people can go into the first heaven. The higher the ranking of a person, the higher he can go in the heavens. Tagaloalagi, who is the supreme God, lives in the tenth heaven. No one else is allowed to go there.

The lovely paradise of Uafato was ruled by a high chief named Lu. He was a great hunter, a skillful fisherman, and a superb farmer. He had a large flock of chickens which were taboo to the people of Uafato. These chickens Lu called his sacred (Sa) chickens (Moa). These became known as Lu’s Samoa.

While Lu was away fishing in the bay, some of Tagaloalagi’s men came down from the tenth heaven to visit their relatives. They were envious of Lu’s sacred chickens and decided to steal some of them. When Lu heard his chickens cackling and flying about to escape the raiders, he turned his canoe around and came ashore.

Lu picked up his “fue” (fly whisk with a large handle) which he used as a hammer. He gathered an army and slowly but furiously drove Tagaloalagi’s men back from the first heaven to the second heaven, to third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh heaven.

When Lu reached the eighth heaven Tagaloalagi could see that his men were going to be killed. So Tagaloalagi got his daughter, Lagi, and laid her on the peak of the eighth heaven. When Lu saw this gorgeous creature he immediately married her. His wrath was appeased. He forgave Tagaloalagi’s men for their mischievousness.

Lu took the lovely maiden and changed her name to Lagituaiva – the lovely maiden of the ninth heaven. On the west side Uafato Bay is the only place in Samoa where all ten heavens can be seen as you look at the mountains.
The tale of Lu and the sacred chickens was featured on a Samoan stamp, so I am familiar with this. But couldn't comment earlier until the contestants had established which country we are seeking here.

Hello Panterra. Yes, it looks as if a wider portion of the stamp image would be helpful.

As a"helpful" counter-example, I would say we can eliminate this set:

Samoa 1994, Manu Samoa Rugby Team, set of 4
Samoa 1994, Manu Samoa Rugby Team, set of 4

Here is a rather larger view of the stamp.
I'm sure you will guess it easily now that you have eliminated the other possible candidates.
