POULTRY COOP
Arthur '1“. Olson, Omaha, Ncbr.
Application July 19, 1937, Serial No. 154,470
2 Claims.
This invention relates particularly to poultry
coops or crates and to crates or coops generally.
The coop is of the type having a plurality of
compartments and it is an important object of
*5 my invention to provide a coop of this character
having a longitudinally sliding door of a size for
readily placing poultry in the coop or removing
same therefrom, said door being small enough to
prevent the poultry in the coop from escaping
10 when the door is opened either to put additional
fowls therein or to remove them therefrom.
It is another object of my invention to provide
special guide means for the door to effect easy
movement of said door without jamming or stick
15
Another object of my invention is to provide
a device of this character having means for re
movably securing troughs for feed, water and
the like to the sides thereof.
A further object of the invention is to provide
25 a device of this character having suitable open
ings above the troughs whereby the poultry in
the coop may have ready access to the feed and
water but which are of such size and shape that
30
said poultry cannot escape therethro'ugh.
A still further object‘ is to provide a device of
this character of simple, durable construction
and of low manufacturing cost.
Numerous other objects and advantages of this
invention will be apparent as it is better under
v35
stood from the following detailed description,
which, taken in connection with the accompany
ing drawing, discloses a preferred embodiment
thereof.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a plan view of my coop showing the
door in its closed position.
‘
Figure 2 is a side elevation of the coop.
Figure 3 is a vertical cross-section through the

53 also aids in binding the boards of the bottom
together. The ends of the coop comprise a plu
rality of verticallyspaced transversely extending
horizontal slats Iii secured adjacent their respec
tive ends to respective upright corner posts I5, is‘
the latter being secured to the bottom of the
coop. The sides of the coop are constructed
similarly, and each side is provided with a lon
gitudinally extending slat 55 secured to the re
spective corner posts l5 adjacent the top thereof.
Spaced above cleats l2 and extending longitudi~
nally of the coop are slats ll, secured adjacent
their ends to respective corner posts IE, on which
are hooked troughs it by means of wire hooks
ing thereof.

to prevent distortion, twisting or bending ‘of the top edges of slats ll. One of said troughs

coop taken on line 3—3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a partial enlarged section showing
a modi?ed embodiment of the guide for the door.
Referring more particularly to the drawing,
which illustrates a preferred embodiment of my
invention, reference numeral ll] indicates the
floor or bottom of the coop, said ?oor being solid
and constructed of boards of suitable thickness.
The boards of the bottom are secured together
by transverse end cleats H and have longitudi
nally extending cleats l2 at the respective sides
55 of ‘the bottom. An intermediate transverse cleat
may be provided with feed 20 and the other with
water 2i. The spacing between slats l6 and I1
is considerably greater than the spacing between 20
other slats of the coop, such as those at the
ends. In the space between the slats l6 and I1
is wire netting 22 of large mesh which is secured
to the respective adjacent slats and corner posts
15 by staples 23. ‘The openings in the netting are 25
rectangular and extend vertically as to their
length, thus permitting poultry in the coop to
extend their heads through the openings to se
sure food and water from the troughs. The width
0
of the mesh is such that the poultry cannot es
cape therethrough, said width being much less
than the length thereof.
The top of the coop is provided with a longitudi
nally extending top slat 24 adjacent each side and
spaced inwardly of the respective slats 24 are
longitudinally extending slats ‘25, the latter being
spaced apart to form an opening of suf?cient size
to permit introduction into and removal of poul
try from the coop.
The c'oop is divided into two compartments by
a wall comprising vertically spaced transversely
extending slats 25 secured adjacent their respec
tive ends to upright supports 2'! secured to the in
termediate cleat i3 adjacent their lower ends and
to other contacting parts of the coop.
Top end slats M and the upper partitioning slat
26 are provided with notches 28 in the respective
top edges thereof, said notches extending between
the slats 25 and extend beneath said slats a por
tion of the width thereof, as shown in Figure 8.
At each end of the slats and extending longitudi
nally of the coop are metal channel pieces 29 se—
cured by small nails 39 driven into the respective
slats through the closed portion of the channels
2

tioned with the open sides facing each other.
The channels 29 serve as guides for the door
which comprises a plurality of transversely ex
tending, longitudinally spaced door slats 3| se
the form hereinbefore described being merely a
preferred embodiment thereof together with a
modi?ed embodiment of the guides for the door.
Having thus described my invention what I
claim is:
cured respectively to longitudinally extending,
laterally spaced cleats 32 spaced inwardly of the
tically spaced transversely extending slats, the top
which are U-shaped in cross-section and posi
ends of slats 3|.
The ends of the slats 3| are
slidably received in the respective channels or
10 guides 29 to permit longitudinal sliding move
ment of the door to open or close same.
By placing the channels or guides beneath slats
25, with the upper sides thereof abutting against
the under sides of the respective slats the chan
15 nels are strengthened against distortion which
might result by upward pressure of the door, as
when the crate or coop is lifted. The door, when
closed, closes both compartments of the coop.
Movement of the door in one direction opens one
20 compartment and sliding movement in the oppo
site direction opens the other compartment.
A modi?ed embodiment of the guide is shown
in Figure 4; reference numeral 40 indicating a
slat to which the T-shaped guide 4| is secured by
nails 42. Slat 43 of the door is grooved at 44, said
groove slidably receiving laterally extending por
tion 45 of the guide 4|.
It is thought that the invention and many of its
attendant advantages will be understood from the
foregoing description and it will be apparent that
various changes may be made in the form, con
struction and arrangement of the parts without
departing from the spirit and scope of the inven
tion or sacri?cing all of its material advantages,
1. In a coop for poultry, a bottom, ends of ver
slat at each end being centrally notched along the
top edge, sides of suitably arranged slats, a top
comprising slats suitably spaced apart and having 1O
a door opening between the adjacent central slats,
a portion of said adjacent central slats extending
over the respective ends of the notches which are
at the ends of the door opening, channel pieces
extending between the notches at the respective 15
ends thereof and secured to the notched end
pieces, said channel pieces being substantially
U-shaped in cross-section with the open ends fac
ing each other, said channel pieces having their
upper sides in contact with the under side of the
respective central slats of the top, and a door slid
ably received in the channel pieces.
2. In a coop for poultry, a bottom, ends of ver
tically spaced transversely extending slats, the top
slat at each end being centrally notched along 25
the top: edge, sides of suitably arranged slats, a
top comprising slats suitably spaced apart and
having a door opening between the adjacent cen
tral slats, channel pieces extending between the
notches at the respective ends thereof, said chan
nel pieces being substantially U-shaped in cross
section with the open sides facing each other, and
a door slidably received in the channel pieces.
