Most expensive chicken coop door opener and closer

Pullitt automatic chicken coop door opener and closer

The Pullit is a new automatic chicken coop door opener that has the motor, controller, and timer built into a sleek see-thru tube.

Some people might say 300 dollars is too much to pay for such a device. It is the most expensive chicken coop door opener I've seen yet, but it looks like it might last 3 or 4 times longer than the popular 100 dollar drapery motor version.

It can handle just about any type of door and is manufactured in the U.K. which might make shipping to the States even more expensive.

Edited to add:

After years of research, Mark eventually settled on
this automatic chicken door.

You can see a summary of the best chicken door alternatives and why he chose this version here.

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 or weeks!
