How high should a fence be to keep out predators? I don't care if the birds can get out, but I worry about critters getting in at night. I am asking because someone gave me 4 ft picket fencing that would look nice but I am not sure if it is high enough to keep foxes or other critters out.

picket fencing is pretty but not safe for your birds...you need wire or hard ware cloth that will keep a snake rat or racoons arm out of the pen also you need the top wired to keep climbing and flying predators out...Pam
