If you've got a timer controlled irrigation system you might be able to convert some of that infrastructure to open and close a chicken coop door automatically.

A timer goes off in the morning, the top bucket fills with water in about 2 minutes which is hooked with a system of pulleys to open the door. An affordable electric valve on the bottom of the bucket opens up in the evening and allows the bucket to drain and the door to slowly go back down for the night.
