Poly Crates For Moving Poultry
The largest crates measure 23 by 38 in. and are 16 1/2 in. in height and can hold approximately three to four turkeys depending on their size and weight.
Joe Putnam, marketing coordinator, explains all crates ship flat to customers but are simple to assemble. “Put the sides on the base, line them up and help them into place with a mallet,” he says. “They latch together firmly and won’t come apart.”
Each rectangular crate has two doors, one that slides open and closed on the top and another that’s hinged on the side. The twin doors allow farmers to load the birds into the crates from either the top or side.
Premier 1 Supplies also has crates for game birds like quail with smooth bottoms to keep smaller feet from slipping through. All sizes of crates are stackable, taking less space in storage.
Crates are produced and manufactured overseas and are available throughout North America.
The large turkey crates sell for $92 each. S&H is free with orders over $100.
