    I took the plunge and ordered me one today. I can't wait for it to get here. Right now my chickens have access to the run 24/7. But I worry everyday about something getting into the run at night. I have it pretty secure but still... then I'm thinking snakes,raccoons, possums we have them everywhere here. If I used a regluar door and I was on vacation my kids would forget to go open it. So with the auto door I will feel alot better knowing they are safe & sound, and able to get out in the morning and locked up at night. I will post pictures after I get it I. Now its just waiting for them to send it...........

    I was going to order one until I saw the price - about $230. Phew! I think I will just open and close the door manually for now.
