    Hi!
    I am in the process of building my coop. I bought a chicken guard door for the chickens, I am wondering if anyone has experience with these? Is the size suitable for all breeds or should I install a back up door just incase for larger birds?

    We have several ChickenGuard doors with our varied flock of bantams up to a 13-pound Bkack Jersey Giant who is ubfirtunately no longer with us. He had no problem at all using the door. We also have two Blue Laced Red Wyandotte roosters who are absolutely HUGE. WIDE. They also have no problems at all.

    Hope this helps!
