Can a predator chew thru the frame on a pop door Should I use metal?
I am in the building stage and not sure how to frame the pop door. If I frame with 1x4 can an animal chew it apart? Given time I think they could. But should I plan for that amount of time. Or, just frame it with aluminum channel then top with wood for looks?
Thanks

If you make the door on the INSIDE of the coop, nothing is exposed for predators to get at. You just need to make the tracks strong enough to withstand something pushing at the door, and make sure the door closes down below the sill of the opening (so nothing can get its claws hooked around the bottom of the popdoor and try to pry or pull up)

Good luck, have fun,

Pat
