I will get the price list later. But being these birds are from the south..., Texas Alabama and Mississippi I want to house them in a non heated garage plus I can run vitamins and rewormed n keep a close eye on them. Since it's about zero degr es right now and one has a runny nose. It was my best option for the time of the year. I have had birds (chickens only) loose toes n get extreme frostbite. So if I can give them a better more comfortable life in a temporary smaller unit. Then I will. It is also a way to work with ur birds in one location, super easy to get at bird and show or condition. Or check. Makes introducing them to a new set of birds that much better knowing there in good condition. (Proper, preparations prevents poor performance.)

I see the tubes.  Are the horizontal?  Do you ever have to clean them out?
