    I am sure this has been covered before so i am sorry, I tried to search for it but was not successful.

    I am looking to purchase the new bio filter boxes for shipping chickens. Where is the least expensive place to find these? Does the PO have them or do I have to order them online? Thanks for any info.

    Murray McMurray hatchery sells them but I think they are kinda pricey.

    some post offices probably have them on hand or can order them...there are a couple supply places...google chicken shipping or birds supplies...I think Foyes carries them

    We use Horizon shipping containers. http://www.hm-e.net/
    don't know that they are the cheapest but they are high quality and we have never had any problems. I've even seen some people reuse the boxes without issue.
