I recently finished a mechanized door for my hen-house, and thought it might be of interest to this group. It uses an Arduino microcontroller and a real-time clock (RTC) to keep track of time and open the door at dawn and close it at dusk plus 1/2 hour. You can see a video of my coup and the door at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7czO7t7sw4s.

Happy Chicken-ing!

Automatic chicken doors really come in handy for those days you want to sleep in or head off to bed early. :) Enjoy your flock and it is great to have you aboard!
