    I'd like to make my coop open automatically every morning. I do not have electricity to it, so the timer and latch mechanism need to be battery powered. It doesn't need to close it and I don't want to spend a ton of money. Ideas please.

    How much is a ton? Most of them are battery operated and cost about 200$. We haven't done it yet but want to get it done by winter. Which is coming fast by the way! Search them on here, lots of threads will give you names and prices. Good luck!
