Automatic door keepers are small electrical devices which attach to your chicken coop above the pop hole. Connected by a string or wire, the door keeper can be set to automatically open and close the pop hole at the times you want. Often set for dawn and dusk, the hens soon learn to go in before the door closes. Automatic doorkeepers ensure convenience and security. There is no need to rush around before work letting the hens out and no constant need to remember to shut them in at night. From a security standpoint, setting your timers correctly ensures hens are safe inside the coop during the hours that foxes and other predators are out and about.
