The Carry Box has been specially designed for transporting poultry and other small animals. It is available in 2, 3 and 4 compartment sizes. We suggest that the 2 compartment size is suitable for larger fowl such as Orpingtons, the 3 compartment size is suitable for moderate sized chickens such as Warrens and the 4 compartment is suitable for most bantams (but please refer to the dimensions given below to ensure that you select the correct Box for your birds). Each individual compartment has a separate lid fitted with a quick release catch. Lids have no holes in them which, in the case of poultry, helps to minimise tail feather damage. By purchasing another Compartment Kit (which contains addional dividing panels, compartment lids and fittings), it takes only a minute or two to convert between sizes.
A wheel set is also available. Each pair of wheels is fitted to a platform that is attached using quick release catches. The rear set of wheels is fixed while the front set swivels and are braked. Brakes help the Carry Box stay in place when movement is undesirable (e.g. in a car or when loading or unloading). With wheels fitted, the Carry Box is very easy to move – a very important feature for those who exhibit animals. Included in the price, we offer free engraving of your name or business on the side panels. This aids security of your valuable livestock and makes it highly unlikely that your Carry Box and the animals inside will be stolen.
Biosecurity is of critical importance and, being made from plastic, the carry Box can be easily cleaned and disinfected, and it will dry out in minutes. The plastic has a diamond texture finish on one side. With this texture facing upwards on the floor panel, livestock do not slip around too much. Boxes are stackable (up to 3 high) and each box can be clipped to the one above for safety. There are holes in the sides and ends to provide adequate cross flow ventilation. The Carry Box can be quickly and easily dismantled for storage or deep cleaning, if required.
Minimum order is a Carry Box Shell and a Compartment Kit. Make sure you select the size you need. Wheels are an optional extra.
