    Are you looking for a whole set up? Ie door , track, motor, controller, battery, etc.. Or can you build own track and door, then just add motor plugged into timer? Does your coop(hen House) have 110v electricity? I built my own track, used a piece of 1/8" aluminum for door and am waiting for Motor to arrive as we speak. Simple timer from Wally World or HD and in business. My motor was 99.00 bucks. ordered on line. Google ...Chicken Coop Door Motors, tons of listings or Automatic Chicken Coop Doors if looking for whole set-up.
    Good luck. Look at my Webpage pics of simple track and door set up I am using. When I get motor, will hook it up, take photos and post them with description of how to do in laymans terms. I like KISS...keep it simple stupid, not you.....me. Happy Chicken-ing.
