I'll see if I can remember who it was that posted about their auto doors. They had several of them.
Welcome to the forum!If your wanting a DIY project just build your own door on tracks and order the motor. Thats what I did. I used the Model D20 chicken door motor by Add-A-Motor.com It lift and lowers like a fishing reel which I like because it wont harm a chicken. All their products come with a 1 year warranty also and they are here in the US. If you do want a door with this motor installed they sell them here: AutomaticChickenCoopDoor.com
What did you end up going with. Update on project?All the commercially produced doors I've seen are only 30cm x 25cm. That's ok for my chickens, but my rooster would never get through that hole. I'm quite good at DIY and am looking to incorporate an automatic door into my current coop. Any suggestions for the best motor mechanism to use would be greatly appreciated.
I currently don't have electricity to the coop, but it could be added if there's no other reliable option. Thanks in advance for sharing your ideas and experiences.
Here's a pic of the coop, during the building process. The door space is front left. View attachment 43634 View attachment 43634
I really don't think that those two individuals are capable of updating the poster's progress. I was also looking to help not be helped.@Mouthpear check the person's activity on the forum. She hasn't been back here since she did the post.
@Poultry Judge and @imnukensc might have some good information for you.
I think you are selling your readers/members a bit short. I have faith. I have also helped a few people get this done. People who said they had no idea what they were doing. I fully believe that most of the people on these sights looking for help, are capable, they just need a guidance. I have many, easy to follow, diagrams. As long as they follow them it can be accomplished.Nice setup but way past most people's capabilities.
