Made, right here, in the U.S.A.

Every effort has been made to select the best quality materials. It is getting increasingly harder to find good quality wood. That may seem "hard to believe", but most of the old growth lumber has been harvested years ago. Whenever possible, we will use older wood for its strength, and dimensional stability. We want our products to provide years of dependable service. Brian Lowery

Most "backyard" chicken fanciers don't have a lot of chickens, so they don't need a big crate to transport their birds. The same thing is true of younger folks who only have a few birds that they might want to enter in shows or take to a county fair. My standard crates hopefully fill these needs.

Pictured above is a much larger crate, one that is an accurate copy of a fifty year old original. Occasionally, I will take on a special project and this crate is a good example. I pulled out all the stops to make this crate like the ones made back in the 40s and 50s. It is the same size, roughly 6 cubic feet, and has the same kind of loading door as the original. Being almost 3 feet long and 2 feet wide, this crate is probably too big for the beginner. But there are some serious chicken fanciers that need to carry a lot of birds, and this crate is the "Big Kahuna" of crates and can do the job for them. I hope the new owner of this crate is as pleased as I was in the way it turned out.

We are keeping all the good features, like the all wood construction, including a true planked bottom, and the ingenius loading door. All the nostalgia is there, but we are striving to make our carriers even better!

Our redesigned crate has stronger corners. This simple reversed angel bracket reinforces the corners, making the box stronger. We want these boxes to last longer, so your grandchildren can use them!

We had custom shipping boxes made to save you money. They are sized to fit our chicken carriers and still fit under the "RADAR" of UPS and FedEx, so you won't pay "oversize" shipping charges.

NOSTALGIA Chicken Crate

Wow, a "blast from the past". Based on wooden chicken crates of 50 years ago, Lowery's Woodworking is making all wood replicas with the same technology that served your parents and grandparents well.

Just like the original, these crates use the time tested latch for the loading door, and noticed the planked bottom. No Plywood! The dimensions are approx. 24 x 18 x 12, perfect for carrying your favorite feathered friends to the fair or show. Some folks even put legs on them and used them for end tables!
