    How often (and should I) apply vasaline since it is getting very cold in GA tonight? They will be closed up in their coop at night. Auto door opens at 7 am closes at 8 pm.

    Tell me more about this automatic door?

    Its called "ChickenGuard". It works on ambient light and actual time too. You can use the light feature and have a time as a back up. Be sure to order the door when you order the actual device. We are very pleased with it. www.ChickenGuard.com I don't remember the price but it was not cheap. All the other doors work on something like a curtain rod auto thing. This was designed only for chicken doors. Good luck.
