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.
