I need some tips or tricks on keeping my chickens out of my garden! We purchased and electric fence only to find out it apparently does not work on chickens, sheesh!
I don't believe that was squirrel damage. More likely ground hog. But, I would expect them to go after your beans (if you planted any) first.I have an issue as well only I think mine is red squirres well tree rats in general. Last yr by 4th of July my corn was chest hight,start to tossel getting excited for some good home grown corn,go out one morning to find it all laying on the ground stalks chewed threw about 6-8" off the ground I searched for tracks thinking coons no tracks, pulled it all replanted put 2x4 welded wire around just my corn and same thing happened. Thinking it's gotta be squirrels. If I could I'd put enough juice to cook whatever touched it but I no it don't work that way. Any thoughts or suggestions my growing season starts in about a month. Thank you in advance
