Fiberglass Slats Used To Build Portable Fences
We used old fiberglass slats from a pig nursery to build portable fences that are used to separate broilers, ducks, and geese. The slats come in 10-ft. long sections. We cut them up into 4-ft. long, 20-in. wide sections and made a three-sided angle iron frame to support each section. It's a simple and cost-free idea that really works.
  We used 2-in. wide strips of 3/4-in. thick plywood to make wooden crates for transporting poultry. They're durable and easy to build. Each box is divided in half and has two hinged wooden doors. We can lock both doors shut by simply sliding a piece of metal that hinges on a bolt over them. The bottom of the box has a solid floor made from 1/2-in. thick plywood. We've used these boxes for years and really like them.(Joel Waldner, 67 Tudor Crescent, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada T1K 5C7)
