    Hi everyone, I have been looking around the Internet lately for transportation coops but all that comes up is the plastic one. I have been using pet carriers but I would like to have wooden ones that wouldn't ruin the feathers. If anyone has any ideas or the dimensions I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

    These people make reproduction ones, they seem to be out of stock until later in the year though, I've seen other ads for "Amish" built ones also if you want to try and google that. They also seem to crop up fairly often on ebay etc as antiques.

    Here is a basic ehow page on how to build them I had bookmarked, don't think I will ever be that ambitious.

    They are really easy to make at home, all you need to do is make a basic cube shape from 2 x 2 wood to your desired size, nail some ply wood to the bottom and use welded mesh wire on the sides.
