what my grandparents did on the homestead was build a sturdy chicken fence with a brick foundation and run it 1 1/2 foot below the surface. On top of that 6 inches away they ran a double hot wire.

This basically deters ground based predators though flying ones still can get at them so basically give them somewhere to run under(bush's etc).
