    Do not use chicken wire! use hardware cloth or somthing like it. I had a horrible experience with Bobwhite quail where a raccoon pulled them through the wire and ate off their legs. All but one!
    We had to finish them off and it was gruesome. I still get the shivers when I think of those poor babies!
