    Well, my Mother, thanks to me, is totally into showing birds now [​IMG] , and of course she wants to have some nice custom made wooden transport coops for her LF Cochins to be toted around in. My Silkies do fine in their KW rabbit transport cages, but hers are just too darn big, and she insists that they're too spoiled to have to use dog crates [​IMG] Anyhoo, we are hoping to find people on the BYC who may know of someone or make these coops themselves in our area (southern CA)?
    On a related note; we did have a nice man's contact info (that we of course misplaced:barnie ) who was willing to make one. If anyone knows the guy who won Best American with what I can only guess was a black Australorp Cock, at the 2011 OC Fair in Costa Mesa, CA please IM me his info! Hopefully he happens to read this himself and can do the same, lol. She will need the coops in a matter of weeks and is relying on me to find someone, please help!

    Yeah thats a nice one, pretty similar to the ones the guy had, except for the doors on top. His were slide out doors, but I think the hinged ones are pretty neat too. I'll send her the link, but I don't think she knows anyone with the time to build them? It will definitely help if we don't find someone soon though and try ourselves, so thanks I.H.H.H![​IMG]

    If you can't get any made in time for the next shop, the airline shipping crates for show dogs work really well for transporting birds.
