Sponsored Content Brought to us by BYC Sponsor ChickenDoors.com Who has a flawless memory? When was the last time you forgot to pay a bill on time? Or to pick up milk at the store? Some ‘senior moments’ are easy to solve (get the milk tomorrow). But some can be expensive and traumatic. That was the problem two friends had a few years ago. Mark and Tony both had chickens and both kept forgetting to close the coops at night. Predators? Nah, that wouldn’t happen to us! And yet - it seemed that when one raccoon discovers an open coop, they tell ALL their friends within miles and soon a dozen hens are gone. Some folks would regret a couple hundred dollars in lost birds and some people would have to explain to the kids or grandkids that their favorite hen is gone. Neither is fun, but imagine if a child finds the scene of the crime. Well, that was what us, two regular chicken raising guys, Mark and Tony, were facing. It only took once forgetting to close the coop to suffer yet another raid. Or if were out for the evening with our wives, we’d be running home just to close the coop! We were suddenly slaves to our chickens! Does this sound familiar? We needed a new tool. Mark is a manufacturing engineer and Tony is an electrical engineer. The answer was obvious: design a door that would automatically open & close. But we wanted the perfect door: no wood to warp, rot or bind, no switches to get dusty & fail, and no strings to break. And it needed to be reliable, secure, affordable and convenient. And the Pullet-Shut Automatic Chicken Door was born! Fast forward a few years. We revolutionized the automatic chicken door market! Look at the doors in your house, are swinging doors more reliable or are sliding doors? We led the market with an all-aluminum frame and door that others have copied. Our door tells you the battery’s status every time it closes. And our customers love that it comes fully assembled. Bolt it to your coop and plug in the battery, it’s really that simple. And we offer handy options like a solar panel or plug-in charger, or a photo sensor which operates the door with sunrise & sunset. The most satisfying part of making the door is our customers. Every week we get letters from customers who once again can stay out late visiting friends and family, can enjoy a weekend away without worrying, and once again are enjoying their birds. So while the receipt says that you bought a Pullet-Shut automatic chicken door, we know what you really are getting in the box: convenience, safety, insurance, and most of all Peace of Mind! Here are some videos that show just how easy it is to install and program the door! Share your stories with us! What was the funniest time you had to run home to close the coop?
