We're so happy to offer this major upgrade to our top-selling Formex Snap Lock chicken coops. It's new, but only to us — it has been sold in the UK for the last few years to rave reviews.

When customers ask us what are the most important features any chicken coop can have, automatic doors are right at the top of the list. You'll never wake up in the middle of the night again, wondering if you forgot to close in your chickens, You won't have to sweat it if you go away for the weekend, work late, or fancy a bit more time in bed in the morning.

See below to learn more about the product features this automatic door offers.

Product Features:

  • Solar power. You'll never run out of battery! The solar panel is flexible and robust, with no glass to break.

  • Made from the highest quality materials. No corners are cut with this door. It's made with brass, stainless steel, and aluminum.

  • Self-locking. Predators cannot open the door once it is closed.

  • Opens at sunrise and closes at sunset automatically.

  • Program your own custom opening and closing times. You can set a custom opening time after sunrise with this unit, or you can just let it do its thing!

  • Manual override. There's a manual opening/closing override, if you should need it for any reason.

Ideal for the most remote locations possible, and no possibility of Wi-Fi dropping out and losing control of your coop.
    • Totally customizable opening & closing options. Ask your door to open at a specific clock time in the morning, or ask it to open according to light levels outside. Tell it to open at 6:55am and it will do that exactly. Same options for night closing! Exact time, or light level-based closing.
    • Set opening/closing strengths. Want your coop door to close a little firmer? Want to back the door strength off a little? No problem!
