CERAMONIAL RELEASE BASKET - 15 BIRDDesigned for the white dove release business but certainly a basket anyone would be proud to own. All white with oak trim. The sides are mesh for full ventilation. A drop down door for release and an unusual rear drop down door to feed and water the birds if they are going to be in the basket for an extended time. The double floor includes a removable raised wire floor to keep the birds clean. Available in two handy sizes. The 15 bird size is 24 1/2 in. X 14 1/2 in. X 10 in. H

The basket is beautiful, well-built with great ventilation which is important in my climate however 15 birds is pushing it for this small basket. I love the rear access for water and feed, I wish that there was a water trough that connects to the basket that either came with it or was at least available as an option. I also would like the basket to have a single easy open latch. Most of my releases are at funerals and families like to open the basket themselves. Although it is easy for me to quickly open the basket it is not obvious to a stranger and I would prefer not to have to teach them anything at that moment. My last thought is corner protectors. Going in and out of the loft in the vehicle etc. it will get banged up and it is really so attractive that I want to protect it. To sum up I would highly recommend this basket to anybody who does ceremonial releases., It showed up at my house in less than a week and I have not used my old Beautiful basket that I hand built sense. Mine although beautiful a bit of a clunker compared to this basket. I wish I had the larger one also. Oh and another great attribute of this basket is the tray. I put white bedding under the tray and it keeps the birds clean and when the basket is openEd nothing flies out with the birds because the bedding is under the tray. That’s how I built mine 20 years ago, good for whoever did this.
