Pullet-Shut Automatic Chicken Door Installing the Pullet-Shut door to my coop was the smartest thing I've done in a long time. I'm not exactly what you would call a morning person and on weekends there are days when I didn't let my chickens out till "brunch" time. On weekdays there would be times that I didn't make it home to lock them in until way after dark. Being able to automate letting my chickens out in the morning and not having to worry about safely securing them at night has been a huge help... for them as well as for me. I opted for the PhotoSensor so I wouldn't have to reprogram the door when the days get shorter, as well as the solar panel and battery option because the coop is not near an outlet. Besides not being a morning person, it would be far fetched to call me a handyman or do-it-yourselfer. The door is very well built and closes very securely. A few months down the line I noticed that the door was not opening or shutting all the way. I called the good folks at To sum it up:

Spruce the Coop Herbal Fusion Nest Box by TheChickenChickShop Chicken Coop Bedding: Sand, the Litter Superstar The material that covers the floor of a chicken coop is commonly referred to as “bedding,” which is more aptly termed “litter,” as chickens don’t sleep on the floor, they poop on it. Litter’s primary functions are to absorb moisture from droppings and water spills, keep odors down and facilitate coop cleaning. The most commonly used litter options are: wood shavings, wood horse stall pellets, sand, hay and straw. My first flock of chicks, their first day in the coop. Pine shavings were the recommendation I had seen most often when researching my litter choices. The reason I elected to use pine shavings over sand was that idea of fluffy shavings appealed to me aesthetically. So, when Facebook fan Kelly V enthusiastically recommend sand and suggested that I try it, I gave it some serious thought. Washed, construction grade sand is a better litter choice for the coop and run than play sand. THE ECONOMICS OF SHAVINGS versus SAND Little Deuce Coop Our 4'x6' coop References and further reading:

Zeolite Zeolite The microporous molecular structure of a zeolite, ZSM-5 Zeolites are microporous, aluminosilicate minerals commonly used as commercial adsorbents and catalysts.[1] The term zeolite was originally coined in 1756 by Swedish mineralogist Axel Fredrik Cronstedt, who observed that upon rapidly heating the material stilbite, it produced large amounts of steam from water that had been adsorbed by the material. Based on this, he called the material zeolite, from the Greek ζέω (zéō), meaning "to boil" and λίθος (líthos), meaning "stone".[2] Zeolites occur naturally but are also produced industrially on a large scale. Properties and occurrence[edit] A form of thomsonite (one of the rarest zeolites) from India Zeolites have a porous structure that can accommodate a wide variety of cations, such as Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and others. Natural zeolites form where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Production[edit] Industrially important zeolites are produced synthetically.

Benefits of Powdered Zeolite 1. 100% safe and non-toxic at any level: All traces of the mineral are completely eliminated out of the body within 6 to 8 hours. It's safe for children, pets, pregnant women and nursing mothers. It is also safe to take with most medications (as long as they are not heavy metal based), but as always you should check with a medical professional first 2. 3. 4. 5. Questions about Zeolite... Mark's Blog: Building an automatic chicken door opener We recently got chickens and found them to be noisy in the morning because they wanted to be let out of their coop. Of course, we just wanted to sleep in. What we needed was an automatic door opener. Here's our 3 hens (Edna, Dora and the bantam Dotty). Click for more photos. Here's the chicken coop, with the addition of an automatic door opener. There are some (expensive) automatic chicken doors that are available for purchase, but I decided to design and make my own. Our chicken coop has a sideways opening door - this design could be applied to a vertical opening door. On opening the clock, I find that it uses a motor with an off-centre axle to actuate the bell ringer. The alarm clock used two 1.5V AA batteries, one was for the clock, the other was used to drive the alarm motor (obviously switched by the alarm activation). Instead I decided to go with a motor, and have it pull the door open using a string. That will cover opening the door, but how do I close the door.
