Frequently asked questions
What is a Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
Do I need a Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
Generally, people who like to get up early in the morning to let their chickens out of their coop and like to close their chickens in at dusk do not need an automatic chicken coop door; they only need doors that protect their chickens from predators and harsh weather conditions. For the rest of us, however, the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is an essential part of ensuring protection and wellbeing for our beloved chickens, if, like us, you do not like to get up early or simply have more to do than close the chicken coop door by yourself every evening. And why do it yourself if our Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is smart enough to complete the task all by itself? The decision lies in the ease and safety of your little chicken paradise.
Where can I buy the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
The product is sold on our website by clicking the “Buy Now” button on our Homepage and in our Amazon shop, which you can reach by clicking on the Amazon icon at the bottom of our webpage.
How much does a Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door cost?
One door costs $180.00 or €150.00 (subject to change).
Can predators open my Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door and hurt my chickens?
No. Most common predators of chickens are very clever, but so are our Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Doors. Predators mainly attack at night and can potentially figure out how to open coop doors to gain access if they are not tightly sealed. Our Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Doors are designed to be very tightly fitted, and when installed correctly, no claw can open them up when they are closed.
Will the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door crush my chickens?
There is a safety stop built in, so the door will automatically stop if it is obstructed. The door stays in position until you open the door manually with the test button and release the trapped chicken.
Is there anything else I need to buy alongside my automated Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
No, we keep it simple. We offer everything in one product—even the power supply. Our motto is one and done.
Is it possible to place a Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door inside my chicken coop?
Yes, the T50 model has that option. You can set the opening time with the test button’s green light, the instructions for which can be found in the instruction manual.
What size and weight of package can I expect when buying the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
You can expect a cardboard box of 16” x 12” x 1.6” (400 mm x 290 mm x 40 mm) and a weight of 2.2 lbs. (0.997 kg).
What will my package include?
One package includes one Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door, two AA alkaline batteries, six wooden screws, an installation manual, and an online warranty code.
Where can I claim my warranty?
Warranties can be claimed online by registering at www.run-chicken.com. We have a one-year limited warranty.
How big is the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
The door is 9.4” wide and 13.8” high (238 mm x 350 mm).
What are the walk-through dimensions of the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
The door’s walk-through dimensions are 8” x 10” (203 mm x 254 mm). For safety reasons, the doors accommodate a standard-sized chicken.
Does the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door come in any additional sizes?
No, only one size currently exists because bigger doors can cause problems for chicken raisers; however, this may change in the future. If you would like to enquire about a custom size, send a request to our boss, Jure Markic, at email@example.com, and he will happily advise you on the best option.
Where can I get customer support and have my questions answered?
Customer support is provided 24/7 by our team at firstname.lastname@example.org and on all of our social media channels.
How do I know if my Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is authentic and of a high quality?
All our products go through multiple quality checkpoints during production. Any item received through our Run-Chicken website or official Amazon store is 100% brand new and unused.
How does the Light Sensor work on my Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
The Light Sensor is designed to be sensitive to natural light but not overly sensitive to artificial light sources. It optimally detects the sun, and the lack thereof, and opens and closes your Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door accordingly, so you do not have to set a timer. The door is smart enough to detect if it is a rainy, murky, or very cloudy day rather than nightfall, so it won’t close and leave your chickens outside. There is a programming option via the button on the door itself for those who wish to set specific opening and closing times. For more information, please refer to the instruction manual.
Will the door open or shut if there is lightning, a full moon, passing lights, cloudy days, etc.?
No, none of those situations would lead the door to open or close. The amount of light during a full moon is not the same as during daytime; likewise, the opposite is true for cloudy days and nighttime.

Everything is painted with HQ Fine Structural Nontoxic Powder Paint. A power unit is 0.157” thick cast in plastic and coated in black.
What array of colors does the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door come in?
The door is available in three colors: Red, Brown, and Gray. We are open to feedback on any further colors to include in the future.
Is there more than one model of door?
At the moment, the only existing model of Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is the T50.
What kind of power source is needed for the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door to operate?
The Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is battery-powered. It requires two AA alkaline batteries, which are included with every door purchased.
Can I power my Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door with electricity rather than batteries?
What are the best batteries to use for the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
What is the expected life of the AA/LR6 standard size high-quality battery?
How do I know that the battery in the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is new and charged?
You will know that your battery is new and charged when you see a GREEN light (battery indicator) blinking on the upper front right of your door.
How do I know when the battery in the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door is running out?
You will know that your battery is running out when you see a RED light (battery indicator) blinking on the upper front right of your door.
What happens to the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door if the RED light is blinking but I do not change the battery right away?
The Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door will not open at sunrise and will remain closed to secure your chicken coop from predators. When that happens, you should change the battery right away so that your door will resume working. You could manually open the door, but that is not recommended.
If the power is disconnected, will I lose my configurator settings?
Yes, please reconfigure them by using the button.
What does it mean if a BLUE light is blinking on the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
The BLUE light starts to blink when the unit’s sensor recognizes the change of day to night, and vice versa, which means that the door will soon open or close. BLINKING means that the door is in “preparation” mode to open or close and does not use a lot of battery life.
What are the optimal environmental conditions for the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door to be in?
What do I do if I live in a very cold climate?
The Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door can withstand the above temperatures, but for the sake of your chickens, you should insulate your coop, use heat lamps if needed, and heat the water to keep it from freezing. This will ensure that your chickens and the door will remain very happy.
Does bad weather affect the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
Will the wind disturb the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door and cause it to open or close at force?
Are the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Doors waterproof?
They are, and they have an Ingress Protection Grade of 67, which means that water will not damage the electrics so that a high-pressure cleaner can be used to clean the door.
How long does it take for the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door to go up and down?
The motor in the door takes ten seconds to open the door and ten seconds to close it. Between dawn and dusk, your chickens can go in or out of the coop as often as they wish.
Is it easy to install and maintain the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door?
Installation shouldn’t be a problem; you can view our installation video under the “Instruction Manual” tab in the menu on the left side of the screen. All our products come ready to install. Skill with a screwdriver is required so that your door is properly fitted, ensuring that maintenance is very easy. The Light Sensor works with natural light and is designed with a Universal Plug and Play concept, so there is no need for any additional assembly or disassembly. Once a year, you may need to change the battery according to the battery indicator (for the changing of batteries, please refer to the product and installation manual, ask us by email at email@example.com, or contact us via our social media channels, linked on our website). As far as maintenance goes, a clean with a damp cloth once in a while and sweeping away debris under the door will ensure it can continue to operate securely.

Can I install the Run-Chicken Automatic Coop Door on a mobile, tractor, or other kind of a coop?
