Thanks.

I'm officially confused...lol

Door sliding up & down = vertical mount. Door sliding side to side = horizontal mount. Door laying flat and sliding = neither horizontal or vertical in the typical sense.

 

Hope that explanation helps???

My chickens are livestock. They are in fact egg laying slaves!

Maybe.....

Side to side 'X' axis, up and down 'Y' axis, both vertical wall installations

Floor would be a horizontal installation on the 'Z' axis.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I just want to know if the LFCD will open & close if I cut a hole in the floor of the coop and mount the door frame on the underside of the floor. I think the designer said it would???  If it will, this door is more universal than almost all the others on the market.

Maybe we could call it flat horizontal? Like a piece of paper on a table (Or under a table in your case).

I don't see why that wouldn't work. If you are putting it under the coop I could just make it rectangular with a rectangle opening. Because if it was under the coop you wouldn't be able to see all of it's fanciness anyway:)

I would think that any opener that uses a screw drive should be able to work the same way under the coop.

I am building a new coop and researching the (fairly limited and quite pricey!!) automatic doors....has anyone else bought this set-up?  What are your thoughts?  Thanks!
