Just finished putting up chicken wire around my strawberries. Elizabeth picked one last night, turned it around to look at it, and discovered that it had been bitten into. We can only assume it was rabbits.
"How many were ruined?" I asked.
"Four," she said.
In my garden, that's a LOT. :) Anyway, hopefully the wire (not to mention the old scarecrow formerly collecting dust in the garage!) will keep the critters out.
I probably need to put something around (including over the top of) my blueberries, too. I seem to recall the birds eating them all last year before I could get any.
