IRN carrier

I will be buying an IRN 5 month old, and I need a carrier to bring her home in.

Can you guys point me to some (cheap if possible) carriers that I can buy to get her home/to the vet in?

Thank you for the help.

I use this carrier for my bigger birds (my Indian Ringneck included):



I got it from a warehouse shop that was closing down for $10. I am sure you can find ones similar online cheap.

Do you know the size of it/where I'd get something like that online that fits a 5 month old IRN?

I've seen people use carriers like that at the vet. I have yet to buy any carriers. I really need some.

I used my poodle's kennel for when I got my grey. I cuddled with my quakers on the way homethough. It would've worked for them.

I use smaller cages for travel for them.

I have the same one as Solace. The small size should be fine. I would check out Craigslist. A quick search pulled up quite a few, $20 or less.

Thanks guys.

I was able to find one like Solace, but it's an open top so that I can get the bird in and out easier.

Was a lot easier to find than normal bird-made carriers.

I have this carrier, it works for upto medium sized birds. It's really nice but it wouldn't work for your grey Abby.
