    We are taking around 20 roosters, various breeds, to a poultry processor on Monday. They need to make a 40 minute car/truck ride alive. It's COLD and snowy here so we have to keep the wind out while letting fresh air in. What do you use?
    I'm thinking a couple dog crates and/or rubbermaid totes with holes drilled in them? How tightly would you pack them?
    Thanks!
