    What type of birds?

    I use vari-kennels for my geese and smaller vari-kennels for the ducks. Those are the airline approved plastic dog crates.

    Lots of show dog equipment is very useful for showing birds.

    For the actual show, to display the birds, it is normal for the club giving the show to provide the cages. You just need something to transport. (if that was what you are asking)

    Every ABA/APA Show that we show at provides show coops.It is a good idea to have a few of the same coops at home to train your birds beforehand.Keipper Cooping is who we get ours from.
