    Yesterday i went to the store,the automatic closing door there had me stop and pause and think i wonder if there was a simple not to expensive setup to make a automatic chicken door like at a store that would open when chickens got by the door that would open for them would be so neat and would help keep some pests out now where I'm at i haven't worries about predators here

    If the door opened upon the approach of the chickens, why would it not open similarly for an approaching predator?
