Customer Comments

Great Product - Easy set-up

What more could you want. I love it. I know exactly when my girls are up and about and can plan accordingly and relax knowing they are safely closed in at night, should I not be there to do it myself.

very easy to fit and programme

The product arrived very quickly just prior to Christmas; an excellent service as always. It was very easy to fit and to programme. I would certainly recommend it to others.

a good product for safe hens

Just the job. Our hens are now safe from Mr Fox. Operating instructions were not as simple as I had hoped, with different headings being described from what was actually displayed. But it could all be worked out with a bit of time. Delivery was over a month which is far, far too long.

Excellent piece of kit

This door opener arrived quickly and was easy to set up and operate. The most basic in the range, it only has the timer option, I have set the timer to let the chickens out way after it is light when foxes have gone to bed, and to close at dark with the chickens in the coop a good half hour earlier.

Best product I have bought for my hens and great support from your team. Many thanks
