      Best Coop Door

      We love the Coop Tender and the helpful customer support.

      Keeps on tickin' after 5 years!

      It's been 5 years and this door is still a workhorse. None of that flimsy string like other auto-doors. I had one of those and it lasted less than 5 months and I never knew the status. I have the WiFi module. Other than occasional maintenance, this coop door is trouble-free and reliable. And the follow up service is excellent, tho maybe a bit slow -- usually takes a day to get an email back, but he stays on it until resolved. Do not buy anything else!

      Impeccable service! I absolutely love the coop tender door

      Works great

      After having lost several chickens to predators, I purchased the coop tender. While it costs quite a bit, at $25 a hen it does not take too many losses to offset the purchase. The installation was easy. We already had electricity to our coop. Once the door was installed, it was just “plug and play”. Now they just need to make a dusk to dawn door for a chicken feeder to keep the rodents out of the feed.

      Love it

      It was the best investment I ever made for the chickens they’re all inside before dark and the door closes

      Great Chicken Door!

      Well worth the $$$$. Takes away the worry of your chickens being safely closed in at night. The WiFi feature also lets us control the unit when out of town which is awesome as well. Highly recommend.

      Great product

      Repair of door

      I sent a door back for repair and they looked at it and found a few adjustments needed. All at no cost. Great service.

      Best decision to buy

      Easy install. Quick shipping. Excellent customer service. Makes my life so much easier that the animals are let out in the morning and locked up in the evening, especially if I am working in the early morning/late evening or the ferry left me stranded away from home for the night. I in stalled it in May and its now September- not issues with the way it works. Well worth the money you spend!

      Amazing Chicken Door, Best Around

      This is our second purchase of the automatic chicken coop door and we are just as happy as we were with the first one. We love these doors and the customer service is amazing. The quality of the door is better than we have seen in others and the "extras" that you can add is far more than any other company offers. We have solar powered, wireless, temperature control, dusk-to-dawn, manual, etc. Having the web app made this my number one choice. We had gone on a 6 month road trip and to be able to have access to our door no matter where we were made all the difference in the world. If we ever had an issue, I would get a response within 24 hours and the issue was quickly resolved. Having listened to others tell of their experiences with their doors from other companies, I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience with Coop Tender. When we needed a second door, I looked at others that were less costly, but in the end purchased our second one from Coop Tender so I could eventually add some of the extras to it - and knowing that they will take care of me as a customer made paying extra worth every penny! I would highly recommend this company if you are considering an automatic door for your chickens or turkeys!

      Easy to install

      Works like a dream, had installed for 2 months so far

      Love my door!

      Excellent door. Works fabulously! I added the battery and WiFi. My girls have the routine down. But I do have a baby cam set up just in case someone gets caught outside. I can open it remotely, let her in and then close without getting off the couch! Great in bad weather.

      Great customer service/Great door

      I ordered my coop tender and several gadgets to go with it. Well I ordered a wrong gadget and spoke with Jim about the item. Jim got me squared away in no time and within a few days I had all of the correct items.. I love the door and I can look from my front door and see if the door is open or closed. Now i can keep working on a chore without having to be mind full of closing the chickens in. It's all ready done.

      It’s a good product.

      The motor seems like it slows down in below freezing weather and the screen menu function also slow down. Hopefully it’s not affected long term. Only had 2 months now.

      Automatic Chicken Coop Door - Coop Tender

      In extreme cold weather, the door will open and close a little more slowly. The motor and screw drive both have some grease, which does thicken when cold; however, the motor has enough torque to operate the door. Be sure to perform worm drive cleaning maintenance as indicated in the owner’s manual to ensure that the drive is clean before cold, winter weather sets in. The door controller electronics will continue to operate in subzero temperatures as well. The LCD display will be a little dimmer. The status display messages and menu system will operate a little more slowly, but the system will continue to operate.


      This is my second purchase

      This is my second purchase both work great.

      Great Product 2nd One

      I bought one back in the summer and have had no problems with it except once and I disconnected power and it has corrected the issue . I have enjoyed the Coop Door ! Worry free device, set the values and let it go . I don't have any options as of now but will probably add some in the future . I don't need battery back up because I have a standby generator . Lots of features if you can afford all of them at once and I have multiple coops . Need one more door !

      Automatic Chicken Coop Door - Coop Tender

      We’re sorry that you found our door complex to setup. In most cases, you only need to plug it in and turn it on. We pre-program each door with settings that work for most chicken flocks and normally do not need to be updated. Your feedback is important to us. As a result, we have updated the Quick Start manual which is sent with each door to include a basic diagram on how to use the keypad menu. We do recommend that you access the owner’s manual and check out the section on Keypad Menu Operation. We have included a couple of diagrams and examples which make it easy to understand the keypad menu interface.


      Love the Coop Tender

      I installed the door with ease in May and it's worked flawlessly. Love the numerous close/open features, not to mention the peace of mind at dusk. Would certainty recommend to other backyard chicken keepers.
