Transporting Poultry the Old Fashioned Way

I've been looking for a Poultry Crate - I like Vintage/Antiques, but sometimes the prices are prohibitive.  This weekend I located a crate within my budget and a reasonable price, and it is definitely vintage!  Weather-faded wood with worm holes in tact - rusty 'make-do' latch - no fuss, no muss.  Just the way I like 'em! (click on pics to view larger sizes)
There was even lettering stenciled onto that old wood:

How Cool is THAT?!?

Oh my goodness!!! What a find.
Especially that it has the company name stamped on it and Grand Rapids to Western Michigan.

Happy 4th!
