Dependable protection for your commercial chicken flock

Certified Humane Automatic Door

Are you a pasture raised poultry producer looking for a convenient and humane way to manage your coop? Look no further than the Certified Humane Automatic Chicken Coop Door with an 18" high by 21" wide opening. This innovative product offers a range of benefits that prioritize the safety, well-being, and convenience of your poultry investment.

Promoting Animal Welfare

Certified Humane Raised and Handled certification brings many benefits to your poultry operation by ensuring that chickens are raised humanely. One aspect of certification for pasture raised hens regards housing:

"Hens must have sufficient exit areas appropriately distributed around the housing (i.e. at least one exit every 50 feet (15 m) along one side of the house) to ensure that all hens have ready access to the outdoor area. Each exit area must allow the passage of more than one hen at a time. - It is recommended that exits are at least 18” (46 cm) high and 21” (53 cm) wide." 1
The Certified Humane Automatic Chicken Coop Door meets these requirements by providing an 18-inch high by 21-inch wide opening, ensuring that multiple chickens have ample space to enter and exit the coop comfortably at the same time. This spacious design promotes animal welfare by allowing your chickens to move freely and access the outdoors as needed.

Enhancing Security

Keeping your chickens safe from predators is a top priority for any chicken owner. The Certified Humane Automatic Chicken Coop Door is equipped with advanced security features to provide peace of mind. The door is made from durable materials that are resistant to tampering and break-ins. Additionally, the automatic functionality and solid steel screw drive ensure that the door is securely closed at night, protecting your chickens from nocturnal predators.

Convenience and Efficiency

Gone are the days of manually opening and closing the poultry barn coop door. The Certified Humane Automatic Chicken Coop Door offers unparalleled convenience and efficiency. With remote door programming, you can easily set the desired opening and closing times, allowing your chickens to follow a consistent routine. This automation saves you time and effort, giving you more freedom to focus on other aspects of chicken care.

Energy Efficient - Solar Operation:

Our coop door controller is energy efficient, permitting operation by using solar power from the sun.

May be powered with AC power (85 - 274 Volts AC) or 12 Volts DC.

An AC to DC power converter is built into the coop door controller which converts AC to DC electricity. The AC power consumption is highly efficient at 1 Watt. DC power consumption is less than 50 milliAmps at 12 volts.

Battery Backup: Install a 12 Volt 5 Amp-hour SLA DC Battery in the door controller - should electric power fail, the battery will run your door for about 5 days, until your electricity is restored.

A battery charger / maintainer is built into our coop door controllers. When AC power is restored, the backup battery is recharged.

Solar Operation:Connecting a solar panel allows forCoop Door operation without AC electricity. A solar panel combined with the solar battery above will operate your coop door off grid. The solar panel will provide power even in low-light situations until full sunlight is available. Three to four hours of sunlight per day is sufficient to charge and maintain the battery during solar door operation.
