Is there an automatic door that would fit for a pigmy goat or sheep?
You can build a door to be any size. The issue will be with the opener. The motor that I am using has a 4 pound limit on what it can lift. If you had a heavier door you could add a counterweight that would help lift the door, and if the door is a bit heavier than the counterweight then it should also close fine using the motor.
There are auto gate openers for cattle gates. I would look for that type.
Chicken door motors are designed for light weight duty.
check your local craig's list for a used garage door opener. They can lift some weight
