Deluxe chicken carrier update

updating the new chicken carrier one year later

It's been a year since I first made the deluxe chicken carrier.

My conclusion is that chickens cackle less when they are in the dark.

The wire cage we used before worked, but I remember more cackling, which I'm guessing equals more stress, which is always something to avoid with poultry.
