How to do a rats & diggers proof Chicken Tractor?

'Cause if I simply put chicken wires in the ground they cannot scratch off the ground, wich is a quite important part of the 'cleaning process' we look for, isnt it? i eard about staking fences on the ground laying 50cm all around to make long and difficult way for the rats to dig under And why not even sharping the stakes to be nastier... ? But if someone have more simple ideas, for more easy ;ooving and maintenance... A good challenge! thanks

Knex Chat Room

Hey I think someone started something like this already but I don't know what happened to it or if it is still active so I started my own. It's located Here or there or how about right here?So yeah come here for a quick chat. It will probably be easier than spamming topics with a useless conversation like the ones you could have in the chat. When you get there and you haven't joined Xat yet then click on your name to change it and your avatar. I'm most likely going to need at least 2-3 (depending on how many actually do come regularly) mods. There are a few rules and if you don't follow then then you will be first kicked as a warning and then banned for a day. If you still continue to break rules you'll be perma. banned from the chat.~Rules~-You may curse but only lightly and not at others. It has to stop when/if there is someone who requests it for the duration that they are there.-No fighting. You must respect everyone. If you disrespect an owner or a mod then you will automatically skip from getting a kick to getting banned for the day.-You may talk about other things but I do request you do stay relatively on topic for the most part.-Please remain in the chat while you are online. It helps me and the main reason people who aren't on a chat room are because no one else is. It starts a chain reaction of inactivity.Alright have fun you guys. I like talking to all of you personally so this will sure be fun for me to meet more of my fellow knexers.
