It just broke my heart this morning to leave the chickens in the coop all day because I was going to be away late tonight, so I've been looking into automatic doors. I am complete dullard when it comes to electrical-type stuff but I think I have settled on the VSB door:
I am going for this one because it runs on batteries (no power in the coop), it's small, and it appears to be an all-in-one unit... As in I don't need to buy a battery, or a solar panel, etc. I could also buy JUST the motor part, and then I think I could install my own door as long as it's light enough.
My question is... do I have this right? As in, is it truly an all-in-one thing (less the door of course)?
