Automatic Chicken Coop Door
For “Automatic” operation, a timer operates this Chicken Coop Door. The timer can easily be unplugged to use any other controller for operating the door. The Automatic Chicken Coop Door is constructed from thick, high-quality lumber. The sliding door is treated with linseed oil. All doors are hand-crafted in the USA. The chicken door is designed to fit 16″ center studs (standard for most construction).
- This Automatic Chicken Coop Door is excellent construction. The wood design helps insulate the coop and preserves a professional look.
- A person can manually open this auto chicken door during a power outage.
- Comes with FREE Timer for “automatic operation and” 1-year motor manufacturer warranty.
- All assembly hardware, door cutout template, power cord, & instructions are included with this purchase.
The door specs are 40 ½ in tall, and the width fits in between 16in center studs (14 1/8in comprehensive), and it fits inside a 2×4 frame. The opening for the door, 13 ¼W x 16 ¾H, must be exact to prevent weather or anything else from getting through. To help with this, we send the door with a cardboard template to help cut the perfect hole for the door. You must also remember to have a power source run to the door.
You will also need to remember to have a power source run to the Automatic Chicken Coop Door. The motor is 120v 60herts 19watts.
Other places charge Over $250 for a Chicken Coop Door that isn’t nearly as well built as this one, but we won’t change that here.
Mounting Hardware Instructions:
- Easy installation
- Stops predators
- You can start sleeping in & stay out late, knowing your chickens are safe.
- Power Cord
Power Cord Preparation: You can cut the motor power cord nearest the square adapter end and the ends stripped to attach the alligator clips or terminal ends to the cord. Positive and negative are not marked on the motor, so you will plug in the motor and touch the stripped wire ends to the battery terminals using trial and error. The motor should run and then stop when reaching the limit flip switch.
Timer Hookup: You will want to use the timer’s instructions diagram to connect the motor to the timer/battery. Essentially (start looking at the back of the timer with the terminals facing down) on the right timer terminal working left <= you will have your battery positive wire connect to the far right terminal.
This wire will then split off the same terminal and connect 2nd to the last terminal on the left side. This will be your hot leads into the Battery Battery Solar Panel Timer Motor timer. The second terminal on the right (to the left of your right positive terminal) will be for your battery’s negative wire to the battery. Your Motors negative wire can connect to this same wire. Finally, your positive motor power cord wire will be the far left terminal.
