Hi there.I’m thinking of getting an automatic coop door opener but don’t know what to get. What model of automatic door have you all used and does it work well?
Never heard of the run chicken t40, but I looked it up and it looks decent just from looking at the pictures and description. I do like the gear drive feature, as a theory, but, in my coop, the notches would probably get clogged up with bedding and poop pretty quickly. If you can afford that particular model, then I don't see why a couple extra dollars is unacceptable for the models already suggested that people have tried already and can recommend, but maybe you will stumble across a winner and be able to recommend the one you get to other people here if it works well. You will definitely not regret the cost of an automatic door. It is a game changer.My work hours have changed so that I don't get home until after dark. So I have 2 choices: leave them in all day or have my daughter shut them up 4-5 days a week. I have been looking at automatic doors and am thoroughly confused. I can't afford the doors suggested. I have a couple questions:
1. On the doors pulled up with a cord, what makes it go back down? Gravity?
2. I found the RUN CHICKEN T40. I love the price and the way it works. But I can't find any info/review on it here on BYC.
Have anyone used one or even heard of it?
