    Hi all,

    A number of us have now been using automatic chicken doors, either self-made or bought, for a while.

    Question:

    If the door is working right, hasn't jammed or stuck or run out of juice -- has anyone experienced a raccoon, or other predator, finding a way to lift the door and get in?

    Given how smart these critters are, it's hard for me to believe not even one has figured these out....
