    I'm in need of a shipping box for 2 cockerels, 4 weeks old. I was advised to use a Horizon 18x18x8 box with biofilters. Anyone know where I can get one? [​IMG]

    Here is the website for the manufacturer of the poultry shipping boxes.

    You might get a better deal buying direct from the manufacturer instead of going through a dealer.

    They also provide a lot of tips and advice on shipping.
