    I am currently in the design stages of an automatic door for the coop. I have a few really good ideas that i will share with everyone soon. What I was wondering is....what time do you set the door
    to open and close.

    Of course I adjust my time settings as the seasons/days change, but currently I have mine opening at 6:30 am and closing at 8:45 PM.

    Hi, I have mine set for 6:20 am and 8:00pm, but changes with sunrise and sunset. My girls are in long before sunset and ready to go out before sunrise.
