I think they look great but worry about shavings falling into your car or if in a ute or trailer blowing out.

I would suggest that you place either hesshion or shade cloth over the weldmesh this will also prevent the possibility of feather damage caused by the mesh. I would attach it to the inside of the mesh not the outside.

I have large Rhode island reds and use these boxes for the
hens and pullets.
I have larger boxes which i use for the males.

Geoff
the boxes have a lip at the bottom to prevent the shavings from coming out. when
they are in the back of the ute they are covered with a tarp over the whole back of the ute.
I have used these numerous times and have had no trouble with feather damage.

Fair enough. I have one of those commercial plastic pet boxes with mesh door and had an OEG break his wing flight first use and I am sick of vaccuming car after I use it. It now sits in shed as an emergency box only.

Just a suggestion. They are great boxes I wouldn't be too proud to call them mine

Just thought i would try for my first post and add a picture of poultry show boxes that i have made for my son who is overly keen on showing poultry and learning fast. Comments on the the boxes would be good, most of the showmen around my area think they are good.

Wow! That looks really good. I like the way you can keep the other boxes secure when you open one of them.

How heavy are they? An easy lift?

It looks like you've added your photos to the gallery and then not known how to post them here. You go to the right of the pictures and you look for a small code box named 'linked image'. When the picture you uploaded is really big sometimes you have to scroll to the right to see the code box. You copy the contents of that code box and past it into your post here.

Here are your pictures:
