    I seen this type of boxes Last year at the Turlock show a guy look like was carrying wooden shoebox with 6 rooster in them tail sticking out but snug fit..And the birds were kool with that...I like that method so they are more relaxed and won't hurt themselves....It's was funny at the time when I told the guy(joking) " looks like you're holding a 6pack of beer!" we both laugh.Alot of us there was just admiring the box of chickens ..I was used to seeing the big filipino boxes in Hawaii all nice finish with 1 bird per box....My guess was that when it was time to run I'd rather run with all my chickens in a box like that Than running with Just 1 in a damn heavy box... Jok!.....

    I can't right now Brutha... I had a buddy borrow the box & he liked it so well that he asked if he could take it to a cabnet maker to be reproduced... it's still there... but I'm supposed to get it & a couple more back.

    Yes, you poke em in head first... hold their tail up & slide the bar under it... their tails do hang out a bit. If you look real close at the front, you will notice that there is slatted sections & solid sections... thats so the birds can't see each other.

    Yer right... the claim is... since the birds are fairly tight in side the box, you get there with better rested birds... they aren't being tossed around in transit ( corners, stops & starts ). Another good thing about em is their size, they can fit inside most vehicles with room to spare.

    i had a guy i seen the other day leave his birds in the mexican boxes during the derby and then take them out to drop them. i had always seen people transfer them to a different box when they got to show. anybody else seen this?

    Its not a big picture but the stalls aroun 8 inch tall, 8 inch wide and 16 inch long. The box is 24 inches wide x 16 inches long with the center stall dividers being 20 inches long instead of 16.
