Works well on our MK 1 Eglu Cube - you need the Conversion Kit for it to fit. The instructions, which come with the door, are reasonable to follow, however, the on-line YouTube video doesn’t show it being fitted to the MK 1 (it says so but it doesn’t). But after watching it through twice I could see how it did fit - so we didn’t have any problems! It works well - it opens and closes when we want it to. It is reasonable value for the cost - but that test will come over time. We feel that we can leave our flock with willing carers (eggs in payment) while we are on holiday and not having them too bothered first thing in the morning and last thing at night. We will possibly think about fitting one to the inner eglu run in the future (saving up the pennies now!!).
Super pleased I finally purchased one of these. Such a relief to know that with the nights getting darker that the gals will be safely shut away when in away from the house. Plus, the lie-ins are fab! It was straightforward to install, took about an hour & have left it on default light setting which has worked a treat. Def recommend *****
I upgraded my coop and auto door just over a year ago and I'm so pleased with this automtic door; it's so easy to operate I can change the settings in just a few clicks. The chickens get themselves up in the summer so I don't have to worry about getting up too early on a weekend - perfect.
Although I have chickens I bought this for my cats to use. They are only allowed to go out during the daytime ( they can get back in anytime through a microchip cat flap but not out ) I bought the auto door because they can SEE when it is open , with proprietary timer controlled cat flaps they cannot, neither can they tell the time ???? Omlet should advertise the Autodoor in their cat section too. Superb product . I will recommend it to all my cat loving friends
Excellent product and easy to use. I set the time manually otherwise my ladies go and lay in odd places and it is quick and easy to change the time to accommodate the shortening evenings. Only giving 4 stars because the paper instructions were either out of date or belonged to another model and it was hugely frustrating in parts trying to follow them. When I went indoors to google I found the online ones which were the right ones so check first that the paper ones match the online ones before you start.
Best purchase ever . No more early get ups to open coop - I truly hate mornings :-). The door is very easy to install and set up and my ladies got used to it very quickly .
I've had the automatic door fitted for a month now and it's brilliant! My ladies didn't like the noise of the door opening /closing at first (as it's attached to my walk in run) and a couple of the ladies didn't want to go through it. But after a couple of days, they were fine and now they all queue up waiting for the door to open up in the morning. It's brilliant especially at the weekend when i can have a lie in. The only thing i would like on the control panel is an over ride switch where if the weather is bad and i want to keep my ladies in the run for the day, it would be good to cancel the timings of opening the door that day without having to take batteries out. I would certainly recommend this excellent quality product!
First time I’ve ever bothered with a review, but this is one of my best buys ever. My 4 cream legbar have got used to the door so quickly and they are really spoilt hens who I lifted in to they’re eglu every night since young chicks. Had it on set time till today ,now it’s on light sensor ,which is perfect for this time of year. Thank you Eglu
excellent product. fits perfectly, My chickens have a cosy place hen the wind and rain is hitting the coop sideways on. Very pleased with it.
