The Omlet Universal Automatic Chicken Coop Door

If there are times when you can’t be there to let your chickens out of the coop in the morning or to make sure the coop is safely closed up at night then an automatic coop door will help to keep your chickens safe as they roost at night.

Being able to let chickens out of the coop early on in the morning helps to prevent chickens from becoming bored which can lead to pecking and broken eggs.

We recommend the Omlet Universal Chicken Coop Door because it not only fits to Omlet Coops, it also fits to almost any coop including wooden and DIY coops.

This automatic coop door works by opening and closing the sliding door at either a time of your choice or by using the light sensor option.

There’s no risk of chickens becoming trapped in the door because theres also a sensor which stops the door from closing if a chicken is blocking the door way.

In addition to the using the Omlet Automatic Door on coops it can also be fixed to a run, which allows you to let your chickens out to free-range at a certain time and will secure the run when it’s time to roost.

Omlet Coop light

The Omlet coop light can fit to any coop and works in conjunction with the Omlet Automatic door.

The light is placed inside the coop and will come on five minutes before the door is due to close which will promt the chickens to go into roost.

The light can also be manually switched on at any time, which is good for chickens who are settling into a new home and need extra help finding their roosting place.
