    Just joined BYC and was looking to see if anyone can suggest which type of auto coop door to get?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC!

    You might stop by this page from our archives on all the threads created on automatic doors. There certainly are a lot of them out there. You might get some ideas from these threads.....https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=automatic+coop+door

    You can also ask around in our Coop and Run Construction forums too...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/9/coop-run-design-construction-maintenance

    I have never used them either so I can't give you any ideas. Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our BYC "flock".

    I would check out the links that TwoCrows gave you. [​IMG]I haven't used an automatic coop door, so don't have any suggestions.

    I don't know anyone who is using them but, I would worry that some slow moving chicken would get locked out.
