Simplify your animal husbandry
Define optimal times for automatically opening & closing your coops to protect animals from weather and undesirable intruders like foxes, martens or others.
Chicken Cooper automatically ascertains and incorporates precise times for sunrise & sunset on your site to prevent annoying perpetual adaptions throughout the seasons.
The flexible installation concept supports a wide variety of door variants and situations. No costly and intricate construction adaptations are necessary to integrate Chicken Cooper to existing setups.
Furthermore no electrical installation must be available because the apparatus can be solely powered by the sun. Chicken Cooper along with its accessories is available in two colors.
Our devices are easy to repair and most components are directly available from us as spare parts.
Furthermore, we pay attention to environmentally friendly packaging and logistics.
In many cases coops don’t provide permanent electricity supplies. For this reason Chicken Cooper operates autarkic. It stores sufficient energy internally, harvested through an integrated solar cell. Thereby Chicken Cooper continuously and reliably operates also at night, during inclement weather periods lasting for several weeks and power blackouts. If ever necessary, manual recharging can be accomplished easily with external power banks.
Strong & Safe
Heavy doors, storms and strong locks necessitate high strength from the pulling mechanism. Chicken Cooper pulls doors with 5kg without exhausting effort and even withstands temporary tensile strain of 10kg. Despite of its remarkable strength, the pulling mechanism can also be throttled to reduced limits for maximum safety in appropriate situations.
Coops are shut with a wide variety of door variants. Chicken Cooper supports most of them, because its internal spool provides two sections for rope mounting. Most guillotine, top/side-hinged hatches and sliding doors can directly be equipped with Chicken Cooper and used without extensive reconstruction. In most cases even two doors can be actuated by one Chicken Cooper.
AUTO SUNRISE / SUNSET
Optimal open & close times for coops strongly depend on the geographical location and significantly vary throughout the seasons. To avoid ongoing adjustments and unreliable deduction from lighting conditions, Chicken Cooper operates based on precisely determined times for sunrise & sunset at your site. With a single configuration of preliminary and follow-up times, Chicken Cooper optimally actuates coop doors year-round without further interaction. For example Chicken Cooper opens your coops one hour after sunrise and closes them 30 minutes after sunset all-season on almost any geographical location. Of course it is also possible to set fixed times for opening & closing whenever necessary.
Storms and predators are serious adversaries for your animals and the locking mechanisms that protect them. Chicken Cooper Magnetic Locks are especially designed and constructed to effectively counteract such threats. Although the Magnetic Lock applies high magnetic forces to keep coop doors closed reliably, Chicken Cooper can automatically unlock them during opening procedures when properly installed. These Magnetic Locks can additionally be purchased as accessories for Chicken Coopers and in many cases directly applied to existing coop doors.
The large & bright LED display provides information about the state of the Chicken Cooper and is also perfectly readable in direct sunlight. Symbols are depicted in sufficient size and brightness to be apparent also from far distances and situations with poor visibility. The extensive and robust metal dome buttons can be easily operated also with gloves.
