Simplify your animal husbandry

Define the optimum times for the automatic opening and closing of your stables to protect them from weather and unwanted intruders such as foxes, badgers, etc.

The device uses automatically determined sunrise and sunset times on site and thus avoids tedious readjustment during the course of the year.

The flexible mechanism supports a variety of different door types and installation situations. In most cases, there is no need for major and costly adjustments to existing systems.

Furthermore, no electrical installation is required on site. The device is completely self-sufficient, powered by the sun.

Effortless pulling

Open & close depending on sunrise & sunset times



In many cases coops don’t provide permanent electricity supplies. 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
