Getting a good night's sleep?

Generally, people who like to get up early in the morning to let their chickens out of their coop and like to close their chickens in at dusk do not need an automatic chicken coop door; they only need doors that protect their chickens from predators and harsh weather conditions. For the rest of us, however, the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is an essential part of ensuring protection and wellbeing for our beloved chickens, if, like us, you do not like to get up early or simply have more to do than close the chicken coop door by yourself every evening. And why do it yourself if our Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is smart enough to complete the task all by itself? The decision lies in the ease and safety of your little chicken paradise.

Protects chickens from predators

Whether you are a free-range chicken raiser or a fully indoor nature breeder, you must have heard or experienced the invasiveness of the wildlife that is praying on your chickens. Foxes, coyotes, raccoons, dogs, mink, owls, and some hawks also find chickens a meaty, easy-to-catch meal. Discovering chickens killed or carried off by a predator can be devastating and frustrating. If you were ever faced with this situation, you surely know the importance of a predator-proof coop. One of the best ways to protect them is to install an automatic chicken coop door. This way, you won't have to remind yourself every day to close the coop. Here you can read some more tips on how to make sure your chickens stay safe.

Saves you time

If you are raising chicken in the backyard or on a farm, you probably have lots of other activities going on. Maybe you have a job away from home or have other animals that need to be taken care of. Perhaps you have fields to cultivate or have many friends you need to visit. Or maybe you want to spend as much time as you can with your family and find time for yourself. Anyway, time is valuable - you can never get more of it. Using an automatic coop door to let your chickens in and out, you get more time to do other things. Run-Chicken automatic coop door is designed to make your days easier and enables modern and efficient chicken raising. Welcome to the 21st century!

Enjoy more eggs and free time

When you have an automatic chicken door built-in, your coop raising chickens becomes a happy, worry-free activity. Your chickens lay more because they feel safe, and every morning you collect fresh eggs without a care in the world. Do you want to get the most eggs you can from your chickens? Here are a few tips. Knowing the door keeps predators out, you can even sleep better. Waking up early in the morning to open the coop door and staying home in the evening to close it is unnecessary when you have an automatic chicken coop door. They usually have a unique built-in sensor sensitive only to natural light, which means they open when there is enough light and close when it gets dark. This feature gives you more free time to go on a trip, visit family or friends, and do other activities that provide you with pleasure.

Energy efficient

Automatic coop doors can run on electricity, batteries, solar power, or a combination of these three. If you have a coop near your house, you can probably install a cable that leads to the door. But many chicken lovers don't have power supplies near coops. Solar power can be a great option because of its positive impact on the environment. However, it is usually more expensive and reliable only if there is enough sun in your area; this is one reason why battery-powered coop doors are the best choice for most. For example, Run-Chicken automatic coop door needs only two AA batteries to power the device. If you use high-quality batteries, they should last you a whole year in climates ranging from −15° F to 140° F (−25 °C to 60 °C). For opening and closing the door, a small amount of energy is needed. The unit lets you know if the batteries are getting low. If you forget to replace batteries, the door will stay closed to protect your chickens.

Programmable opening and closing time

Automatic coop doors usually have two modes of operation - light sensor and timer-based. Doors with light sensor technology will automatically open at sunrise and close at dusk or dark. On the other hand, if you have a coop door with a timer, you can configure what time you want them to open or close. The timer comes in handy, for example, if you have doors installed in a darker environment and you want them to open sooner, or if you have a specific breed of chicken that needs to stay outside longer. Both technology variations have their advantages and disadvantages, so we recommend a door with a light sensor and a timer-based option. Run-Chicken automatic coop door has a high-tech sensor that excludes all artificial light sources, such as sensor lights, street lights, and flashlights. In addition, door technology automatically detects your time zone. It is also possible to program the opening and closing time using a button on the unit.

Ready to have your own automatic coop door?

Run-Chicken door made a huge difference in my life. Before, I couldn’t go on all-day trips, fishing, or visit my friends in the late afternoon because I had to be home at a certain hour to close the chicken coop. Sometimes I asked my friendly neighbors if they could do it, but I don’t want to bother them too often. The Run-Chicken door opens and closes automatically. I can do other chores now in the morning and have no worries. It works perfectly!"

It works perfectly!Alex from California

I love everything about this product, from the price point to the design to the function. It is so simple to install, it’s ridiculous… Bravo, Run-Chicken!«Phil

This is the door you want to buy! "This is a remarkably well designed/thought out product. I was a little hesitant given it costs the same as the "name brand" pop hole doors, but its design is just a billion times better."Ben S.

GREAT PRODUCT "Great item. Seems very well made. Sturdy. I really like the direct drive system vs the separate string roller that other automatic doors have. Had to do a little fine tuning on the closing adjustment at dark. Been about a month now, and I would definitely recommend this product."Rich

Is Chicken and Rooster the Same Thing?

There are a few key differences between a chicken and a rooster. For one thing, a rooster is larger than a hen. This is because hens grow spurs as they mature, a sign of strength and health. This is why it is so important to be able to tell the difference between the two. However, if you're not sure whether you're dealing with a hen or a feisty rooster, there are some things you can look out for in order to distinguish the two.
