Hi,

Does anyone know who makes & sells the wooden boxes used to transport birds in.

I have heard that a man makes them in the sydney area & sells them for a reasonable price (cheaper than making them yourself).

Any one know who he is?

If its the same person, he has a family buisnes that make nest boxes, carry boxes, breeding cabinets & so on. He also makes cage fronts. He supplies nearly all the pet shops in Sydney. I remember, 1 of his nest boxes from the shop $10, direct from him $2. This was a few years back.
He was in St Marys. His son in law is a real good friend of my sons god father & Ã

sure i will get pics on by the end of the week. But they are slightly different to the better models i built and sold and havent renewed mine because i havent had time to get any more corflute. the only difference is the hinging technique which i will explain with the pics.

for muscovys, yes the boxes are the same design but would have to be bigger and stronger, i would suggest wooden boxes because i now how rough muscovys can get :lol: but for chooks they are plenty strong.

if you can get a big enough sheet of corflute you can make all the lids with one peice by scoring half way into the channels of the corflute so it bends like its hinged, on that box iv just used cable ties

Some pics of transport boxes i made for my son, very strong construction, latches and removal able compartments, have made 2 three and 2 four compartment boxes all with removal inserts between each section, a rough cost of $200 - $250 per box which would include painting them (made from marine ply) size is a little higher than most but stops tail feather rubbing so happy with the same. Thoughts would be good!!

This looks like the Rolls Royce of show carry boxes to me. Love the strong piano hinge and the sturdy metal handles.

Your son is well set up.

Do the dividers slip out?
