We have 10 ducklings who need more space, but their pen is not done yet and isn't electrified (They are not feathered yet). I hoped to move the to our back screened porch in the interim, which is in our fenced backyard. But now I've started to worry that though we've seen no evidence of raccoons back there, the enticement of the quackers might bring them. Has anyone has experience with raccoons tearing through screen? They will have a 2x4 wire puppy pen around them as well. I don't want to put them at unnecessary risk, but they need to go somewhere. Thanks!

We keep our semi feral cat's food on our screened porch and I can tell you there isn't a screen that isn't damaged in some way from the raccoons trying to get to it. I would not trust screens to keep out raccoons.
