      excellent product - a life changer  two of these have been installed now for a few months, so far totally reliable the chicken put themselves to bed, and up in the morning, we (ie. she)just feed and water when we are up, only one regret, that we did'nt do this 5 yrs ago !  (05/07/2016) David Poulton - powys mid wales


      Brilliant   A really reliable way to let your chickens out when they want to rather than you having to get up at the crack of dawn! I can now enjoy my daily visit to see our girls and take my T R when it suits rather than rushing first thing.   (05/07/2016) Caroline - Llanvaches


      Great product  This is the second of these automatic door openers that we've bought and really value how reliable that are. Once you get the hang of the programming then they're simple to use and you can trust them to protect your hens.   (05/07/2016) Andy - Bakewell


      Eggcellent  Great product. Takes all the worry out of keeping chickens. A must have for busy people   (14/05/2016) -


      the best invention ever  I wish we had found this when we brought our chickens . It gives so much freedom and safety to both our girls and us .   (14/05/2016) matt - derbyshire


      Happy chickens  This is quite possibly the best thing I've bought for my ladies (and me). No longer do I need to dash out to open/shut the door or worry when I'm away. Extremely easy to install and operate - especially when combined with the steel door. Great service and quick delivery too!   (13/05/2016) Elaine - Cornwall


      Loving it!  Easy to instal, never fails. I don't even have to change it throughout the year because it does it itself on auto!   (13/05/2016) -


      excellent  I bought this to replaced an older system that had just stopped working. It is much neater than my original door and works very well. Customer services was very helpful when I misunderstood something in the instructions.   (23/01/2016) Val - Woking


      Fantastic product !   I've only had this one for 2wks but am extremely pleased with it. After a slight struggle configuring it its worked perfectly. I especially like the reassuring red light that blinks every 30 secs whilst the door is shut at night making spot checks quick & easy. Would recommend   (22/01/2016) Sue Horner - N. Yorks


      Life changing for both chickens and myself  The best purchase you can make when you want peace of mind. I keep my chickens on my allotment and up until recently never shut them away. This has made a huge difference and is the envy of other chicken owners on the site! One small issue with battery case but quickly sorted by manufacturer   (07/01/2016) -

      Great product but you have to speak French/German  The device is wonderful and very well built. Only problem is the two units I have only allow you to select French/German or Dutch no English, so all settings were in French. Once I got the phrase book out was able to make all settings and it works really well.   (22/12/2015) Tim Brittain - Wales
    Our Reply: Hi. Sorry, the manufacturer shipped some with the wrong language installed. these could have been changed if you'd wanted.


      Prompt effective service.  Great product with decent instructions and works well. I would recommend it to anyone.   (22/12/2015) -


      Does what it said it would  Have used it on the timer so far very pleased. Very quick delivery also.   (21/12/2015) Paul S - Crawley


      Premium chicken guard auto door opener - Good  Easy to fit providing you follow the steps and ensure the sliding rails are not too tight against the door otherwise the door will jam. I bought the aluminium door as well and I reckon that the best thing to do.   (21/12/2015) Dave - Essex
