I like Chris and
Keri's automatic chicken door solution for several reasons. The design
is simple, solid, and cheap to do for under 20 bucks, and they have
detailed pictures with videos, and a wiring schematic to make the
process easy for someone who might want to follow in this direction.
I've been looking at several different versions of these automatic
doors on the internet and this is one of the first to use limit
switches, which might come in handy for future experiments.
This is a plan I would favor because of the low cost and easy to
follow directions. Thanks for sharing Chris and Keri.
Edited to add:
After years of research, Mark eventually settled on this automatic chicken door.

If you're planning on
automating your coop, don't forget to pick up one of our chicken waterers. They never spill or
fill with poop, and if done right, can only need filling every few days
