OK, I can find automated feeders, waterers, heaters, brooders, egg turners, etc. Why can't I find a simple guillotine style opener (like the pet door ones) that I can set on a timer to open at a certain hour and close at a certain hour? Any ideas? The only one I can find is in England and I don't think the electric issue is compatible out here. Anybody out there have an idea how I can modify the pet door kind to work on a timer (on=open, off=close)? And, I don't have a problem with getting up to open the coop door, my problem is the dark. Yes, I'm one of those who is afraid of the outdoors at night, hence can't go out there to close the girls in and keep the bad guys out after dark. I've let this routine slide for a while, but with the cold and the new chicks on the way, I have to get that door closed at night. SO... I can try to build something on my own, but don't want to re-invent the wheel. I know I can't be the only person that want a automated chicken coop door. help!
