Fantastic door, easy to fit and locks securely, wish I had bought this earlier, now get a lie in, I do check they are all in at night when it closes but had no problems
So glad to have this door as i am not an early bird. We guessed on light levels choosing open 27% and off at 10% and the hens seem happy with that.
Fitted easily, sturdy, works
I have been thinking about getting an auto door for a while. I decided to get one due to one day not being at home my family forgot to let the chickens out (in the morning) and it’s safe to say this is one of the best things I have brought, after a little modifying to my homemade coop to accommodate it, it works perfectly and means that I don’t have to worry about them being let out when I’m not home. It also helps to keep my cockerel quiet as he is let out and doesn’t need to call me to open the door. For anyone think about getting one it is worth the money and you will have happy safe chickens.
The only downside I can see is that large breeds such as Orpington’s may not get through it comfortably, but standard sized needs like mine get through easily.
It is lovely not having to worry about opening and closing the coop!
Doorway of my coop had to be widened slightly but it was easy to cut away as coop is recycled plastic. Just wanted to reassure anyone who has this style of hen coop that the door can be used.
Omlet door works brilliantly but it took me a while to work out the settings! (Am I the only one?)
I am really pleased with this purchase. It was so easy to install on the wooden sussex coop. The timer is easy to operate and alter the settings to personal requirements. Certainly worth the money, I am delighted I decided to buy one
We absolutely love this door. Every morning my daughter was being woken up by their loud squawks of 'let me out, let me out! It was getting so bad we were wondering if we were going to have to give them away. My husband suggested the door and it's been amazing.The girls all hid in the laying box the first couple of nights and then his their eggs outside for a couple of days, but they are used to it now. An assembly hint, ignore the instructions to take the roof off, you can do it all with the roof on if you don't mind climbing inside. Ours wouldn't unscrew anyway and it saved us a lot of extra effort. It was easy to assemble and is actually better than we thought it could be. Well done Omlet.
