    Hello I'm purchasing an automatic pop door for my chicken coop and looking for some advice, my pop door already slides up and down so I'm only looking to buy the timer type one, I don't think the sunlight one would work well as my run is covered, i would like to get a trustworthy one from the start, thanks in advance for any help

    I use a ChickenGuard Standard which is battery powered and on timer. The unit can be bought without the actual door.

    How often do you have to replace the batteries?

    So far I haven't replaced the batteries. I installed my door about 14 months ago...
