My kids are doing meat pens for the 4-H livestock show, I need to find/purchase pens for them. they will be taking 3 birds each, and so I need it to not be real expensive. LOL Someone told me dog carriers, but then I got to thinking. I am totin, 4 kids, hubby, 8 rabbits and 8 chickens to this thing. And the rabbits and chickens all have to check in by 8am. I dont see me totin a bunch of dog crates. LOL Now, I do know that with the rabbits they cant be in the same cage, or even accessible to each other. Bordom and not knowing each other (if they are from differnt litters) might make them pull out the fur of the other rabbits. not good on show day. I've heard about how bad broken wings, bent feathers, etc are in birds, plus bruising is a huge nono. So how should I transport them? what size cage per each bird. I dont know a weight. we are supposed to get them as heavy as possible for the show. they are a cornish X.
