    $40 OBO May be willing to trade for quality bantam eggs, chicks, or breeding pairs

    PICK UP ONLY!!!

    These cages are WAY too big and too heavy to ship!
    I am located in the Antelope Valley in Southern California, right outside of Edwards AFB.

    I have 8 of these heavy duty metal cages available, so please PM me do not click buy it now.

    Cages measure 4ft x 3ft 4in and 2.5ft high from floor of cage to top. Squares are 2x2 inches. They are very sturdy and could easily be used as brooders with a few modifications. I am making a floor for one and lining it with poultry netting to use as a brooder in my garage.





    Here is a front view with the flap side down~

    These were used to store clothes only. They have been kept outside since I have had them.

    Do you ever make it down near San Bernardino ever? I'd take ALL of them if you could bring them down here. I'm not in a hurry, could be weeks from now even. Those things are the BOMB!!!!

    Just wanted to add a couple of pictures of what I have done to the cage to make it a temporary coop for my new roo. I made a bottom for it to hold shavings and added a tarp for wind protection and shade.
