    "Premium Combi door and opener very good"
    Pros - Works very well once set up, the door was fairly easy to install and it slides up and down smoothly. It seems very sturdy and I like the locking mechanism so I don't have to worry about something pushing it up.
    Cons - It was tricky to get programmed correctly from the instructions. It took us several days to get it opening and closing as we wanted and it was not intuitive.
    Overall I am am very happy with this door and opener. Its really nice to know if I don't make it home by dark that the girls are safely locked up and I don't worry about them getting noisy in the morning looking to be let out. The lock mechanism works well and its not going to get pushed open, and the door slides smoothly in its tracks. We had a bit of an issue getting it programmed, but once we got it down its worked well.
    Purchase Price:
    £138.32 converted is $172.49 for the door and the opener, it was shipped from UK in 3 days

    "Easy to setup."
    No regrets, I love it. Easy to program and use right out of the box.

    Great product! I don't have to worry about opening their door when i leave for work in the mornings! I leave for work before sun rise, I set the timer and it is so nice to not have to worry about opening it myself.

    When I saw the pic at first I thought it was something to kill a chicken with, cause of the metal door and the chicken right under it. Oops! Glad I looked twice...:D

    For comparison we have a Brinsea ChickSafe and it has worked flawlessly since installation in June.

    The newly redesigned ChickenGuard automatic chicken coop door opener has been released this month, May 2017. You can check them out on the website, and use the store locator to find locally: I'll try to get these images updated on BYC.

    I love mine! I am going to try to add a door. The only problem I've had was when the side broke off the spool and the door stopped. Once I figure out the problem, I used Krazy glue, and it has been working like a charm! You still have to keep your eyes open, just in case.

    "'s no burden for our neighbours to to take care of our flock. The only have to supply fresh water and food once a day. In return the get the eggs.The only problem since we have this opener is, that we have a lot of neighbours who like to babysit my chickens. "

    It's funny, but I have the same 'problem' since my chickens became easy to look after! ;)

    I bought a chickenguard because my coop with a small roofed run is rather small for 6 chickens to stay in for several hours. The run is quite safe but i fear not safe enough for predators that come in the night.
    The chicken guard makes it possible fot the chickens to enter the run in the morning after the suns comes up and iit closes automaticly at nightfall.

    The system was expensive and not easy to install. But now it works perfect and I am very happy with it.
