I've had chickens for about 11 years now, but I'm getting old and wanted to automate the door. I got it working in testing, so I set it this morning and forgot to be home in time to be sure nothing bad happened, and it did. One of my hens got squished. I'm beyond horrified. She likes to sit in the door, and I thought, since the door comes down super slowly, she'd get the message (it's SUPER SLOW!!!) but no, I got home to a grizzly scene. I've disengaged the door now, and am thinking of getting one of these string dropped doors. Does anyone know if Self Locking Chicken Coop Door would squish a hen? Or would a hen just have it lay on her until she gets out of the way?
