    So I've got a couple rolls of this wire fencing stuff. [​IMG] I had been planning to simply wrap these around some metal stakes I would drive into the ground. But now I wonder, will that even be sturdy enough to protect them during daytime foraging?

    I also notice that the fencing is only 3-4 feet high. Will clipped wings be sufficient to prevent escapes?

    Would really like them to be able to roam my yard but its not totally fenced in, and there's lots of dogs around. Any advice on how to do this cheaply?
