UNITED STATES Parar orifice,

:DANIEL E. SPEICHER, OF URBANA, INDIANA, ASSIGNOR TO THE CYCLONE MANUFAC- TUBING COMPANY, OF URBANA, INDIANA.

POUL'IRY-HOUSING DEV ICE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 6, 1920;

Application led November 18, 1918. Serial No. 263,021.

To all whom t may concern.'

Be it known that I, DANIEL E. SPEICHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Urbana, in the county of lVabash and State of Indiana, .have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Poultry-Housing Devices, of which the following is a specilication.

This invention relates to improvements in poultry housing devices such as shown and claimed in Letters Patent #1,303,736 issued May 13, 1919, and it is the principal object of the invention to provide the housing device with a novel form of bracing or reinforcing means adapted for arrangement across the normally open end of the main housing section thereof whereby the sides of the section will be maintainedrin rigid spaced relation and in consequence will permit the parking or secondary section of the device to be freely adjusted with relation thereto and also will permit the housing device to be used with or without the bottom.

Another and equally important object of the invention is to provide a novel form of removable bottom for the main section so formed as to provide guides for the lower marginal portions of the secondary section, shifting of said bottom with relation to the main section being prevented; by its engagement with the reinforcing element.v

Other objects will be in part obvious and in part pointed out hereinafter.

The improvements in the details and arrangement of parts will be apparent from an inspection of the accompanying drawings when considered in connection with the specific description hereinafter contained and wherein a preferred embodiment of the invention is shown for the purposeof imparting a full understanding thereof. Y

In the drawings:

Figure l is a perspective view' of the im proved housing device in its extended position.

Fig. 2 is a verticaly longitudinal section therethrough, the removable bottom being shown by full lines in normal lowered position, while by dotted lines the said removable bottom is slightly inclined to disclose the path of movement in removing the bottom from-the housing section. y

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary end elevation of the main housing section, and

Fig. .4 is a reduced detail in perspective of the novel form of removable flooring employed in connection .with the main housing section.

Having more particular reference to the drawings in connection with which like reference characters will designa-te corresponding parts throughout the several views, l represents the main housing section of the device, the lower marginal portions of which are flanged at 2 while the marginal portions thereof adjacent the forward or normally open end of the same are rolled and receive a wire bracing or reinforcing member therein, one portion of said member extending transversely across the lowerl portion of the open end of the section l as indicated by the numeral 3 and being provided with upwardly bent ngers or stops d, the purpose of which will be presently apparent. To permit the device to be readily carried, a handle 5 of suitable form may be and preferably is engaged with the top portion of the section l.

Snugly received in the lower portion of the housing section l and resting on the flanges 2 formed on the lower ends of the walls thereof is the removable floor G, which as will be noted is provided with right angularly formed flanges 7, certain of which engage the flanges 2V while the remaining or forward flange is received under that portion of the reinforcing wire indicated by the numeral 3 as clearly shown-in the Fig.

3; the fingers or stops l serving to posi- 90 tively stay undue movement or shifting of the floor 6 with relation to the section l, that is., longitudinally of the same. The fingers or stops 4 not only serve to prevent longitudinal movement of the flooring 6 as 95 does the wire from which they are struck or formed, but they also serve to prevent upward or near vertical movement of the opposite end ofthe flooring such as might be permitted should the flooring be engaged only by the loweipoition of the bracing wire. ln other words the formation of the fingers or stops Ll in the lower portion of the bracing wire serves to prevent the wire from acting as a pivot upon which the flooring G 1.05 could move. In this connection, it is to be noted that the flanges formed on the opposite sides of the floor 6 are of widths such as will cause the body portion of the floor to be spaced inwardly from the adjacent portions of the side walls of the section 1 and in consequence will provide longitudinally disposed parallel ways.v The lingers or stops i are located onthe portion 3 of the reinforcing wire so as to be disposed contiguous to the ways in the floor G.

Telescopically engaged with the main section 1 is a secondary or parking section 8, the sides and top of which are formed of foraminated material having its free marginal portions braced by strips 9 secured thereto. The inner end of the secondary section 8 is open while the outerend thereo'l' is closed by a wall 10 formed with an exit 11, which as will be noted, can be closed by doors 12 and 13, the door 13 being of foraminated `material and so arranged as to be covered by the adjacent door l2 when desired. Iiotatable locking pins 14 are engaged with the wall 10 and are adapted to pass through openings formed in portions of these doors 12 and 13 whereby the same can be positively held in their open or closed positions.

To effect ventilation of the housing device when closed, circularly disposed ventilating openings are formed in the upper portions of the endwalls of the sections 1 and 8 and receive cutoff plates 15 thereover, these plates being formed with corresponding openings adapted toA aline, when desired, with said irst opening. I-Ience, by rotating the control plates 15, the size of the openings in the end walls of the several sections can be controlled and in this way proper ventilation of the device will be insured.

From the foregoing, it will be readily understood byv persons skilled Ain the art that I have provided an exceedingly simple, compact and durable form of housing device for poultry, further, a device which will be found particularly advantageous for use in connection with the raising of chickens. By reason of the engagement of the reinforcing wire with the forward or open end of the main section 1 of the device, the adjacent portions of said section will be materially rigidiiied and braced and therefore, movement of the parking section Sinto and out Athereof can be effected with'ease and without liability of binding in the section 1, such as may be caused by theV impinging of the side walls on the side wallsk of this parking or secondary section. Furthermore, distortion or` 'undue movement of the floor 6 such as may be caused by move# ment of the side walls of the main section 1 will be prevented, While longitudinal shifting of the floor will be prevented by reason of the stops 4 formed on the portion 3 of the lreinforcing wire.

Manifestly, the construction shown is capable of considerable modication and said device and overlying a portion of the floor to provide a retainer therefor and to prevent sliding movement of the latter.

3. In a telescopic housing device, a bracing element carried by one of the telescoping sections of said. device at the lower portion thereof, a flooring removably arranged in one of said sections and underlying the lower portion of the bracing element to hold said flooring fixed against sliding movement. i

4. In a telescopic housing device, a flooring arranged in one section thereof having.

longitudinal ways formed therein for receiving portions of the other section, and a bracing element extending transversely across Vthe lower portion of the open end of said first section and overlying a portion of the flooring to prevent longitudinal movement thereof. j

5. A telescopic housing device including main and secondary sections, said main sec tion having the lower portions thereof flanged, a flooring arranged on said flanges, said flanges being formed with longitiulinally disposed ways for receiving `the lower marginal portions of the secondary section, and a bracing element extending transversely across the lower portion of the open end of said main section having connection with the sides thereof and overlying a portion of the floor. v

6. In a housing device having telescoping sections open. at their ends interfitted with each other, a bracing element extending transverselyacross the lower portion of one open end and having connection with the sides of said section, portions of the said bracing element being bent to provide guides for the'other telescopic section, anda removable floor arranged in the first named section and having its forward portion bent to engage with the bracing element so as to hold the floor against sliding movement.

7. In a housing device having fa body open at its bottom and front, a bracing element secured to the open front and disposed transversely across the open bottom adjacent to said open front, and a flooring removably held in the body to close its open bottom and detachably engaged With the transverse portion of said element.

8. In a housing device having a body open at its bottom and front, a bracing element secured to the open front and disposed transversely across 4the open bottom adjacent to said open front, and a fiooring removably held in the body to close its open bottom and detachably engaged with the transverse portion ot' said element, and a telescoping section slidable in the body.

9. In a housing device having a body open at its bottom and front, a bracing element secured to the open front and disposed.

transversely across the open bottom adjacent to said open front, and a flooring removably held in the body to close its open bottom and detachably engaged with the transverse portion of said element, and a telescoping section slidable in the body, the sides ot the body and the element being constructed and arranged to provide Ways for the sliding section.

In testimony whereof, I aliix my signature hereto.

DANIEL E. SPEICHER.
