My new 10 bird aluminum carrier came in from Jedds yesterday. Man, they are nice looking. Another great thing is the small size, as it will fit nicely inside my jeep.

We bought wooden ones..............

They sound really efficient.

Does the aluminum heat up in the sun or in contact with any heat? That may be a small drawback, but something to consider. I would never keep my birds crated up for very long anyway....and especially in the sun, they are sually in the shade.

I'm sure that IF they were left out in the sun for a pro-longed period, they would indeed get hot, but NORMAL pigeon fanciers only have their birds in these crates long enough to either get them to the tossing spot or to shipping night. Maybe in the crates over night for one reason or another, but the sun doesn't shine at night, so............
I doubt it would be a problem for any one with half a brain. ;)
However, sometimes I DO wonder........:rolleyes:

I have 3 of the aluminum ones and have never had an issue with them being to hot. The only thing I dont like is the width of the metal dowel rods in the top. they are too far apart and allow the birds to stick their heads out.

They just want to see where they're going!! LOL
You're right though. We were laughing at some birds doing that last night while we were shipping.

I have 2 of the large ones... they do get hot when you leave it under the sun but something I will never do when it's loaded with my pigeons. Cleanup is very easy... I just gather the shredded paper and hose down the basket. I spray it with some bleach every month to sanitize it.


Here's a pic of my basket

ezemaxima,

It gives me pleasure seeing your beautiful birds as always.

Nice aluminum crates for both of you guys. I suppose it costs more than wooden stuff.

Hey Tony. It's pretty big. I'd say you can fit 30-40 birds in there. It's divided up into two sections with the trough as the divider. I know Georgia's quite a ways from Minnesota. But I'll take pictures of it tomorrow. And if you like it, you can make me an offer.

Sounds like a plan.

The only time I've ever had a problem with aluminum crates was when three of us used to train together. We used an old staion wagon for training, after a while the noise of the dowels, release doors, and other various loose metal parts, rattling against each other on a round trip 50 mile toss would just about drive you crazy! That's not a problem when they are in the back of a pickup or in a trailer.
