    Default Bird Crates

    Where is the best place to get a volume discount on bird crates for a club?

    TIA!

    ask the guy that supplies your club with birds , if he values your business he should also be willing to help you get bird crates from his supplier

    Simply ask the world famous Splash_em where he got the last ones. They were multi-color but the birds don't mind.

    Are you looking for the plastic ones or wood ones with sliding doors?
    If you want the wood ones I build them, the size I make will hold 6 ducks. I can make them any size you want. The current ones are $30

    We'll order another pallet of 20 this spring.

    PS - I'll give you your phone charger this Sunday. You jumped out screaming and running towards the house so fast you left it in my truck.

    We get ours from pakster co in TN :http://www.pakster.com/poultry-transport-crates.html

    They give discounts on pallets of 20 and if you don't mind the color... Or you can even custom order the color you want! These work great for ducks and can work for pheasants if you fill them with straw to keep the pheasants from jumping up and hurting themselves.

    Mark you might be able to contact Sanderson Farms out of Hattisburg and see if they will sell old used ones. That is were So Miss and PHRC got theirs when the law passed that the chicken places had to us metal ones. But I think they are back to using plastic again.
