Thought: We have a roll of 4 foot snow fence lying around. They don't fly over, it's 4 foot. Cheep, Cheep. Of course you'll need a good dog or two to stay with them 24/7.
I decided to purchase the electric/solar panels as there are foxes, skunks and coyotes in our area. I was hoping to find something less costly but I don't think it can be avoided.
This is an awesome idea! HD also sells that orange or green plastic utility fence ... that could also work. Why didn't I think of that! :)
