    You can use a cat carrier.

    Go and buy those cardboard pet carriers, its alot less of a mess and safer for the chickens. Once they are done with it, you can either reuse it or throw em out.

    when I carry larger orders of chickens, I use a rabbit cage like Havaheart cages and set the cage on a newspaper lined floor. I find this more messier and rather use cardboard carriers.....

    For single large birds or a few small ones, I use a small wire cage. For more, good old cardboard boxes or 5 gallon buckets.
