The Western Sporting Small Hawk Box (Giant Hood) is made using 3mm black Coroplast. This material has been used for many years to make hawk boxes (giant hoods) because it is durable, light-weight, easy to clean, and easy on feathers. Each box is professionally cut and creased. These hawk boxes will last for a very long time with a minimal amount of cleaning and care.

NOTE on White Hawk Box: We have been doing some tests painting the outside of the box white and the internal temperature does seem to be lower. (We cannot acquire coroplast with one white side and one black side for the production runs we do on this product. We would need to order a semi-truck load to get the material custom-made for us.) So, we tried painting the outside of the box with a high-end primer and then white latex paint and think the paint bonds very well with the coroplast. We set the boxes outside on a hot day and it was 96.4F inside the black box and 83.8F inside the white box. 12.6 degrees difference! Obviously, the falconer would not set either box out in the sun with a hawk in it but we needed to know the difference on a hot day.
Alternatively, a falconer can acquire Krylon spray paint for plastic and paint the outside of any coroplast giant hood. The surface should be clean and lightly scuffed with light sandpaper prior to spraying the box. We have seen that this works to lower the temperature also.
Low Shipping Cost: The design of this giant hood allows it to be folded flat for much lower shipping. Upon arrival, the hawk box is easily assembled using the provided nylon rivets and screws. Instructions are included.

A 2400 rpm, 25 dB ventilation fan is included with each complete Coroplast Hawk Box, creating a gentle flow of fresh air for the hawk. The ventilation fans are wired with a multi-function switch and can operate on either AA battery power, a wall adapter (included), or with a cigarette lighter adapter (not included) in a vehicle. Simply flip the switch and control which power source the fan uses. Each fan unit comes pre-assembled and is easy to install during box assembly.
Internal Digital Thermometer
A thermometer is mounted in each box that has an easy to read digital display showing the internal temperature in degrees Fahrenheit for the inside of the box at all times
Note: Do not leave any raptor inside a hawk box while it is in direct sunlight or in poorly ventilated conditions, especially around car exhaust.
Requires 8 AA batteries. (Batteries not included.) We recommend the purchase of high-quality rechargeable batteries for use with the ventilation fan. Regular AA batteries with 350 mAh capacity will run the ventilation fan for approximately 15 hours.
