    I know everyone says that electrified fencing works great. They have solar powered ones.

    Just keep them locked up at night and in a run while you are not home to supervise their outdoor adventures. Make sure you bury the wire of the run down in the ground a bit to keep foxes from digging under. There is a lot of info in these forums on how to predator-proof a chicken run.
