About Us


How It All Began


Hi I’m Ben.

I appreciate your interest in ChickenGuard, so let me tell you a bit more about us.

About 10 years ago I was gifted a flock of chickens by my mother. With no experience of hen husbandry, especially the importance of safe bed times, I soon fell ‘fowl’ of Mr Fox and sadly lost a few of my flock.

Upset but undeterred, I decided to set about designing and inventing a way of keeping the remaining hens safe. So from my kitchen table, the ChickenGuard© automatic chicken coop door opener was invented. ChickenGuard is now an essential item for all hen owners, with units being sold in 44 countries already.

Allowing you to go out without having to wait for your chickens to go to bed in the evening, and your chickens to get up whilst you stay in bed in the morning, the automatic door opener protects your chickens from foxes and other predators, without you having to lift a finger.

Here at ChickenGuard©, although we continue to develop and design new and innovative products, we still love old fashioned values too, so each unit is assembled by hand at our factory in the UK and you can also talk to a real person from our in-house Customer Services team. We have come a long way from my kitchen table to our factory and base in Cambridge technology.
Walt Disney may have said, “We continue to move forward, opening new doors …” but here at ChickenGuard©, we make sure they are opened and closed for you, to keep your girls safe and sound. We know how important your chickens are to you, and that’s important to us.
