    After three years of design and testing Fall Harvest Products have created what we believe is the best automatic poultry door you can put on your chicken coop.

    With the Patent Pending Screw Drive design, this new product will be the most reliable poultry door and the best value on the market. We all see the ever growing need for predator protection, with coyotes now in inner cities, and raccoons and fisher cats everywhere. Even our own company president has experienced losses in his own hen house, with a fisher cat killing eighty hens in one season, a raccoon killing fourteen hens in one night, and on another occasion, a great horned owl killed five hens in less than 30 minutes inside the hen house at night before he was shooed off. We saw the need and it was time to address it.

    Many competitors have developed "cable lift" doors that a wise old raccoon would have no trouble figuring out and prying up to get in. Cable lift doors also jam when ice or snow is in the door frame tracks. Other doors have complex systems that require an engineering degree to install, not to mention the vast array of tools needed and the hours lost on a Saturday and Sunday trying to install it and get it working properly. We know how valuable your time is and also know that maintenance may or may not be your strong suit, so we took those considerations in mind when designing The Incredible Poultry Door[​IMG]. After a great deal of engineering and testing we have gotten it right!

    The Incredible Poultry Door[​IMG] is quick and easy to install over an existing coop hen access or a new opening in your hen house wall or door. Simply fasten The Incredible Poultry Door[​IMG] to your existing wall over the hen access opening, attach the photo sensor on the outer wall, and then plug in the power cord into a standard 115 volt outlet and you're done! It's really that simple to get many years of solid protection to your birds.
    Now, an auto-magic poultry door which is reliable. Predators are everywhere and they are raising havoc in hen houses. The Incredible Poultry Door[​IMG] for chicken coops small and large alike, solves this big problem quickly and reliably!

    "Unreliable - usually at the worst possible moments"
    Pros - When it works, it automatically opens and closes the coop door.
    Can use a light sensor.
    Cons - Reacts to perceived blockages by leaving the door open.
    Our reason for getting this unit was the peace of mind it would provide us when leaving for a period of time.

    The coop door is designed to open back up when it hits a chicken. In reality, when it hits *literally* a single pine shaving, it opens back up and...

    1. Stays open
    2. Sounds a high pitch beeping alarm
    3. Flashes a bright green LED light

    All until you manually reset the system! This is a design flaw. Your coop is left with an open door and noise and light to attract predators. This would happen several times a week.

    We used this thing for a year because until very recently we couldn't find a proper replacement. Meanwhile, the manufacturer has discontinued this model. We now own a Coop Tender automatic door, which can be controlled over the internet (no extra cost) and sends updates via text message and email. If for some reason the door has stayed closed or open, you can manually close or open it and reset the system via your iPhone -- from anywhere in the world!

    "Incredible Poultry Door Parts replacement"
    Pros - Installs fairlyeasy
    Cons - No wear parts available
    My door is 17 months old, in June the drive mechanism started making noise, turns out the screw drive is wearing out but manufacture does not sell replacement parts, a simple fix if I could get the parts, in stead they want to sell me another door .

    "Best Poultry Door I have ever used!"
    Pros - Easy to Install, No String or Cable that can jam or Break, Doesn't Require a Heavy Door Because of Screw Drive Design
    Cons - A Bit more expensive than some out there but TOTALLY worth it! You get what you pay for!
    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. That means no strings or cables to get tangled! It works on a light sensor and sets up real easy. I had installed it in 15 minutes. It runs on regular power (outlet). But I was able to hook it up to a battery with a little help from the manufacturer ... they were great. They care about their product and took care of every question I had. I have had this door for a good while now with no problems at all. I can finally go away for the weekend and not worry!

    Great door! You can save $45.00 though. We sell it on our site for $284.95 ($45 less than Amazon) and we have no shipping/handling in the continental US. Same door, brand new. We keep our profit margin reasonable so you don't have to pay high prices, and we don't charge shipping/handling in the lower 48 states.
