This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Whether the chickens are housed in an urban backyard or out on the family farmstead, their coop has to be opened up every morning and closed again at the end of the day. Rather than scheduling your life around doing the job by hand, try using one of these automatic doors to secure the roost at night and let the flock out at dawn to forage, while you catch a few more Zs or attend to other chores. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best automatic chicken door on Amazon.
