46% of urban coop chickens rarely get let out of the coop more than 3 times per week.
This makes for unhappy chickens and unhealthy egg production. To promote a healthy coop get an Automatic Chicken Coop Door or automate your current door.
Another statistic found urban coops will spend upwards of $200 per chicken on housing and feed before the chicken reaches egg-laying age (6 months old). The price of our chicken doors is a no-brainer when it comes to protecting your chickens.

About This Item：
🐥PLUG AND PLAY TECHNOLOGY – It takes no more than 10 minutes to install the door (no complicated wiring or cabling).
🐥Automatic opening and closing auto-on and timer settings – Set and go means that your door will work by itself when the sun is up and will go down when the sun goes down. If needed, you can set the timer for opening with the test button.
Most common predators of chickens are very clever, but so are our Automatic Coop Doors. Predators mainly attack at night and can potentially figure out how to open coop doors to gain access if they are not tightly sealed. Our Automatic Coop Doors are designed to be very tightly fitted, no claw can open them up when they are closed.

Some customer reviews:
I have updated my review since upgrading to the latest version. This version (now shipping) is excellent. You can set it to open or close the door 30, 60, or 90 minutes after sunset/sunrise using DIP switches and a knob allows you to tweak the brightness threshold. You can even choose one of three motor strength settings. The mechanism is simple, reliable, and works well. This updated version has all of the flexibility you need while still being very simple to set up.
We had a little trouble with the adjustments and when I contacted customer service to let them know, they were very responsive. I even let them know we got it to work properly, but they insisted on sending out a new controller just to be safe. We have it connected to a solar battery and it works perfectly. My chickens are happy to be out of the coop before I’m out the door in the morning and I’m happy I can go to bed before they do in the summers. Definitely recommend.
So far so good; we purchased this based on the good reviews and it arrived on time, has nice packaging and most importantly was easy to install, and has been working very well for the week we’ve had it! Our run is closed in so I’m not concerned about predators opening the door; it is a thinner door and has small holes along the middle of the door which my husband would like to close but it offers some ventilation!
Q: Can predators open my Automatic Coop Door and hurt my chickens?
A: No. It would take a 100-pound raccoon to open this door after it has closed…and if you have raccoons that big, I wouldn’t be having chickens or small children.
Q: Will the Automatic Coop Door crush my chickens?
A: If it senses resistance (for example, a trapped chicken). The door stays in that position until you open the door manually with the test button and release the obstruction.
Q: Will a motion detector light cause it to open in the middle of the night?
A: The light sensor is designed to be sensitive to natural light but not overly sensitive to artificial light sources.
