  • US Patent:
    40375650, Jul 26, 1977
  • Filed:
    Nov 24, 1975
  • Appl. No.:

    Lloy W. Ledwell - Texarkana TX
  • International Classification:
    A01K 2900
  • US Classification:
    119 82
  • Abstract:
    A system for harvesting and transporting chickens comprising a self-propelled vehicle having finger-carrying chicken harvesting means at one side thereof for picking up and elevating chickens as the vehicle advances; a first conveyor carried on said vehicle for receiving chickens from said chicken harvesting means and moving them to a second side of said vehicle; an elongated telescoping conveyor having one end positioned under one end of said first conveyor at said second side of said vehicle; swingable boom means pivotally mounted on said vehicle and including a flexible suspension member connected to a medial portion of said elongated telescoping conveyor for swingably supporting said telescoping conveyor on said vehicle; and a coop structure adapted for connection to the end of said telescoping conveyor which is remote from said vehicle. The coop structure is multi-tiered and includes a plurality of collapsible, removable floors, and means for controlling the sequential collapse of the floors to discharge chickens in sequence from the several tiers through the bottom of the coop structure. In a preferred embodiment, the system further includes a second self-propelled vehicle having a conveyor thereon, and means on the vehicle for supporting at least one of the coop structures over the conveyor for discharging chickens from the bottom of the coop structure onto the conveyor.
