An Automatic Chicken Door Opener

Posted April 14, 2012 by Chris

“We recently got chickens and found them to be noisy in the morning because they wanted to be let out of their coop. Of course, we just wanted to sleep in. What we needed was an automatic door opener. There are some (expensive) automatic chicken doors that are available for purchase, but I decided to design and make my own. You are welcome to copy or adapt the design to suit your own requirements.”
