ChickenGuard Automatic Door Opener

Fabulous. Puts you mind at ease if you are not at home at closing time!

oregonkat

Pros: Easy as pie to program and to reset if you goof. Works like a charm.

Cons: I wish the wood side panels and the channels were made of metal.

I use this to open the enclosure to my hen house so it is fully exposed to the elements.  I think I am going to have to construct a roof over it to protect the wooden side rails, other than that I absolutely love this thing.  It works brilliantly and puts me at ease if I forget to close the hens in and wake up at three in the morning in a panic.  Hope it doesn't fail.  So...

Pros: Opens and shuts like clockwork.

Cons: Trying to override the "auto functions" during daylight hours has not been very easy.

“This door has really been convenient for me! I love just setting the time and forgetting about it. I go out every night to put their food back in so I can also check that the door has closed properly and opened in the morning when I take their food back outside. I have NO complaints. Great product! ” --keeskrazy

ChickenGuard Automatic Door Opener

ChickenGuard Automatic Door Opener

“This is absolutely the best thing I have ever bought for my coop. Before I bought it my coop was often open and vulnerable to predators for far too long during the day, as I often leave for work an hour or two before it gets light in the winter, and sometimes get home well after dark.   It is easy-peasy to install - just four screws to fix it to the wall above the pop hole, and tie the...” --KayTee

“ I had another door once that used a string and it jammed all the time. I had to keep re-spooling it and it was more time consuming than just letting the chickens out myself in the morning. So I looked around for a bit and came across the incredible poultry door. This door was the answer to my prayers! It has a screw-drive which means the door goes up and down on a screw like a garage door....” --FarmerBrian72

“ I have 2 inside mount doorkeepers with the light sensor and have had them for over 3 years.  They have never failed, and I routinely change the batteries once a year - just to make sure they don't run out.  It closes so slowly, so you don't have to worry about a chicken getting caught in the door while it's closing.   This doorkeeper is worth every penny!  I never have...” --Happy Chooks

Pullet-Shut Automatic Chicken Door

Pullet-Shut Automatic Chicken Door

“This has been a great automatic door for our 8X16ft chicken "cabin".  The instructions for installing were simple and the process was finished quickly. The video on youtube was very helpful also.  I have had to adjust the morning opening and evening closing times as sunrise and sunset change, but that is so very easy.  It is great that the door opens to let the chickens out into...” --Cheryl1948

“Installing the Pullet-Shut door to my coop was the smartest thing I've done in a long time.   I'm not exactly what you would call a morning person and on weekends there are days when I didn't let my chickens out till "brunch" time.  On weekdays there would be times that I didn't make it home to lock them in until way after dark. Being able to automate letting my chickens out in the...” --twar
