I'm pretty down home with things so I use a Banana box I get from my grocery store. It has holes in it but I cut more. I cut a flap in the top to put birds in and then just take the top off of the bottom box to release them. Course I'm from Ozark hillbilly country.

You can even put them on a cardboard box with holes for ventilation. I even once transported 2 of my birds by just grabbing them and putting them inside my car. I decided not to do that anymore when they started pooping all over the inside of the car.

Some guy does this when he comes down to canada from halifax with his birds in the truck for 3 days :S. He litterly has them nicly divided 2 birds per banana box. He brings them down for a pigeon show,

I have see a lot of the pigeon carriers like the ones Rod posted that use canvas instead of veneer.
I like the cavas better because it breathes a little more and the veneer can be somewhat brittle if hit with a corner of another carrier.
The veneer is probably easier to clean.
I just use and odd assortment of different types of cages, which unfortunately can allow a pretty good size mess to form in my car.
At some point, I want to make some really nice carriers that are well ventillated, non-damaging to the feathers and that contain all the dust that pigeons throw off.
