    I have been looking at transport cages to move my birds to a processor for farmers market sales. But the cages are very pricey. I am a pretty good carpenter and have not seen these close up but has anyone made a version of these and if so how many can you get into a cage?

    I would be hoping for at least 10 birds to a cage.

    I found a local guy who made wire cages. I told him what I wanted and he made it for me for $20.00. I've had 7 chickens in it. I suppose I could cram 10 in there. You might search your area to see if there is anyone around there who makes wire cages. It's not near as heavy as a wooden one would be.

    check your local vet clinics...you would be surprised how many crates they will have. Folks bring in an animal to be put down and don't want it back
