    I'm looking into coop doors and was curious - how far does the pullet shut open? Just 90 degrees, or fully open?

    Any and all opinions on doors are welcome ;)

    thanks!

    Past 90, but not 180.

    It opens more than 90 degrees but I don't see why it would be necessary. I have mine set to open up to 90 degrees and my chickens get in and out no issues.
