I have to take 6 roos to be processed (an hour away) on Wednesday. I do not have a chicken crate available but I do have a large dog crate -- will that work? Is there anything else that might work better?

Thanks!

Thanks for the help...I'm not sure how much room they should have to move around (I'm assuming not much) and I'm supposing that it would be better if they can't be climbing around all over each other (so shorter would be better than taller). I'm still trying to figure out what we have around the house that will work best...the dog crate is definitely an option. It's just kinda big, is all.

Thanks again -

The dog crate should be fine, and I second the bedding point. Cleanliness, and the fact that a dog crate will probably have a bottom on it that they would slip all over on. Bedding will help.
