Wildlife Eating Newly Planted Tulip Bulbs?

I already planted my tulip bulbs; I live in zone 5. Now the wildlife are digging them up and friends are telling me to dig them back out of the ground and wait another month or so. I have spent hours searching on the web and have ended up more confused. I would appreciate any ideas anyone may have. Thank you so much

Cover the area where you have planted the bulbs with chicken wire available at a hardware store. A roll may cost about $11. Spread it over the area and place some heavy rock a long the edges. The plants will grow up through the wire in the spring.

I have had squirrels dig the dirt out of my flower pots and eat the roots of the plants. I wish it wasn't illegal to shoot pellet guns where I live.

Shooting a stream of water at the little buggers isn't illegal but is a good deterent. Try it and see (it works for me).
