    I am still Pimping my Coop and have decided on installing a automatic coop door. There are tons of them on the market ! Has anyone purchased one that they like or dislike? I'm pretty handy with tools so installation doesn't intimidate me. Battery or solar options would be nice. It must be one that slides up and down as we have terrible wind at times and I can see a swinging one getting bent or ripped off in a gust, And no...I don't want to build one from scratch :)

    Check the link!
    You will need to build a simple
    Door and purchase a simple timer.
    It's not rocket science

    Here is an inside video during coop
    Construction testing the set up;

    Thanks. I guess it just a drapery motor.

    CHICKEN COOP MOTOR

    Motor easily connects to your coop door and
    automatically opens it every morning and
    closes it at night. Installs in minutes.

    Simply plug the motor into your lamp timer
    switch and the rest is automatic. It saves
    you time everyday and protects your hens
    and eggs. Only $99.95.

    No AC power ... No problem! Use a battery.
    Details below.
