Automatic Chicken Door Openers

Welcome to Chickenguard, the home of Automatic Chicken Coop Door Openers.

We pride ourselves in offering the best quality products which are manufactured by our family run company here in the UK.

We source the highest quality components within the UK and we have the ONLY door openers which come in a neat ‘all-in-one’ box with timer and light sensor*.

We are constantly adding to our range so look out for our new products coming soon, such as our self-locking door to keep out those clever raccoons!

If you want the best, then buy the best … we have door openers in the coldest parts of Canada and the hottest parts of Australia and they perform all day, every day so you can relax in the knowledge that your hens will be safely looked after.

Straightforward installation and ease of use are of paramount importance – you only need to know how to operate a screwdriver! Easy to follow instructions, available to view in the download section, combined with our unique, fully featured LCD display, helps to make our Automatic Door Opener the easiest to set-up and go.

Our Automatic Door Openers give you the peace of mind and security that your hens deserve.  Let’s face it, we love our chickens, but the daily rush back to lock them away safely at night isn’t much fun and realising that you have forgotten after you have retired to bed is downright frustrating.
