    I don't know about automatic doors but, I bet they could learn to push the swinging - dog type doors. They are so good at banging on the door when they want treats, it should be easy.

    I think I'm going to find out!

    We've been making plans for the duck palace and now it looks like it will include an automatic door [​IMG]

    Guessed that one [​IMG].

    But I do bet you discover they are as smart as chickens, will look forward to hearing about the new adventure.[​IMG]

    Would rather stick with chickens, but making plans to add some newbies this spring. Told DH yesterday and he is all for it [​IMG]

    So, gonna get that brooder scrubbed up and start thinking about what breeds...[​IMG]

    Will start studying on how to integrate them, but bet it will be easier than the ordeal with Penny.[​IMG]

    Since we lost one the other day and now are down to 9, DH and I talked about getting a few this spring. He never says no to more animals so we'll see what 2016 brings. I'd like to get about 6 more chickens (chicks).

    We had good luck integrating with the look/don't touch process last year...very little squabbling. You'll do fine and I want to keep up with your plans!

    Time to run for now...ttyl!
