DIY Automatic Chicken Coop Door Opener

 

We wanted to make our chickens easier to take care of by building our own automatic chicken coop door opener. Using a couple of parts off eBay, we’re able to set up a 12V door opening system complete with opener, battery, and solar panel.

Things didn’t go as planned in this episode because the light sensor switch, which would normally open the door at sunrise and close it at sunset would not work.

But we got a great start, and decided on a design for the chicken coop that looks like an aircraft hangar!
