    Where is a good place to purchase one or two show cages to use for training at home.

    I am also guessing you could make one, but it would end up being chicken side or hardware cloth. Should they be same type of cages with bars usually at shows?

    I just ordered some from Keipper Cooping , they are collapsible when not in use.

    This 4 section banty coop was about $40 plus shipping. It is double walled in between sections so that the rooster don't fight. I'm really happy with my purchase.

    They are in Wisconsin too, so perhaps you can save on the shipping and pick up!

    They do look good but they don't have any prices?

    So I take it that you bought 6L but without the bottom? Is it not needed?

    Yes, that is the 6L.

    I didn't buy the bottom. I have it sitting on plywood that I had in the garage.

    Here's the Coop #1 with my big LF cochin, and my little Phoenix in it.

    Quote:I'm debating on getting the 4 compartment bantam coop or the double compartment large fowl coop.... Can you take out the dividers in the bantam one? I have silkies and the hens would fit but my roo is sooo big. How do your birds lime the bantam coop? Are they comfortable?

    I wish there was a 3 compartment medium sized coop. It's so hard to decide which one to get!
