    Received my door and installed it yesterday. Super easy to install and program options. LOVE IT!!!! Worked perfectly last night and I tried to get up early to see what time it opens and by the time I got out there at 5:10 it was open and the girls were out. Awesome product so worth the wait and money. I am so happy I decided on the Ador.

    How long did you have to wait from the time you ordered, mischke ?

    I ordered mine on June 3rd, about 2 weeks. Which isn't that bad I know some waited longer. I also think that Rod is working on getting orders out quicker. It is well worth the wait. I am so happy I got this door instead of the other one I was looking at. It is a very high quality door, very impressed.

    Okay, here's a newbie question. An automatic door would certainly be handy, but what happens if the door shuts and my hens aren't in the coop yet....and it's winter, and I'm working late? Worst case scenario but what if?

    Thanks :)

    One of the Ador1'a features:

    Programmable "LastCall" feature. When enabled, opens one last time briefly at dusk for tardy chickens.

    Yes there is the last call feature but my chickens have always made it in on time they just know when it's starting to get dark.

    Hahaha, the same thing happens at our house. I never hear the door open (the coop is outside our bedroom Windows) but I hear the frantic clucking as they all trample over each other getting out the door at about 5:15 am.
