So tonight, I lost a hen as I was an hour late past dark time to close my coop, and as saddened as I am, I need to make sure I don’t forget again. I’ve been meaning to get an automatic hen door for a while now, and I’m wondering which ones you guys in suggest both in quality, safety and good price (as many are pretty pricey). Thanks for all your help!
 
I only have experience with one door and that is the Ador1. Although I hate the suggested lantern battery cuz it's such a tight fit and make securing the wires a pain, albeit minor. I replaced that battery with a pair of 18650 lithium-ion rechargeables wired in series to give 7-8.4 volts. They should last a year but I recharge 'em every six months just to be on the safe side.
