Even when I am not at home, I'm sure that the door closes at the right time. However, before the Eglu Cube, I had an Eglu Go for 8 years. My mean reason for upgrading the Go to a Cube was the fact that at night, the chicken would sleep on the nesting area, making it dirty. The eggs we retrieved were dirty as well... every day. In the morning, there was no time to clean the nesting area. The Cube solved that issue. I have now white chicken (before I had brown ones), so I have white eggs and they are without a spot of dirt when I retrieve them. However, if I do not close the internal sliding door at night and open it again in the morning, the chicken will go in the nesting booth and sleep in it (making it again dirty as was the case with the Eglu Go). I'm not always in time at home at night to close that sliding door, so I was wondering if anyone already attempted to automate the opening and closure of that sliding door towards the nesting booth. Grateful if anyone has some info or tips on how they did it or how they would do it. Thanks, Mario
