use hay bail,green hedges,flower pots ,or the small white fence . check out my farm

What I did is carefully watch which part they get out from the fence, then I have placed that water trough there. My problem solve.

There has to be at least one space between any other item and the fence sections, or my animals will get out regardless of whether they have plenty of room, or where their troughs are, or how they are grouped. When all the gaps in the fence are closed, and I make sure nothing is touching the fence sections--like trees, troughs, wells, fertilizer bin, etc--my animals stay put.

This is what I did to my farm. It's been like that for a month now and none of the animals moved from their spot :) So happy now.

I think this may be a bit off the wall but I have noticed that my animals will all be quite happy where I put them and then a farm "jumper" will come on and I thiiink it is when they appropriate my fences or something then my animals get all jumpy again. After a few days of just patiently setting them back where they belong they seem to settle down again. This is why I don't think Zynga can fix the problem while there are still farm "jumpers"....

This is rare!
my goats used to walk in to my rabbits aaaall the time, just right through the fences... so now, I moved the rabbits to the old goat-pen and let the goats stay in the rabbit-pen... the rabbits stays in th eold goat-pen, and the goats stays in their new pen, haha, strange! and it doesent depend on where I put the watertrough at all...

Here is a suggestion. Animals will cross a fence if there is a water trough on the other side. Don't place water troughs next to fences that separate two animal spaces. My animals still get out sometimes, but this seems to reduce it be 90%. Ive tried 3 different fencing systems and the animals still cross.

i took a suggestion. I put my animals in specific paddocks.... their own spaces. Each paddock is separeted by trees, wells, whatever. Since making sure all animals have their own spaces and there is some type of space between the pastures, I have had NO issues.

Ive done all the suggestions and even have a trowel in the area there leaving, with PLENTY of room. This must be a glitch. hopefully zynga will fix it, plus its funny but my sheeps keep getting stuck in the water well.

My animals seam to be fine with walking on plots. BUT... you may be on to something. They do NOT walk on the wooden plank walkways (neither do the humans strangely enough). I was planning on overhauling and reorganizing my farm... I think this might just work! I am going to make smaller pens (really cram them in there!) which they normally hate and will escape from every time. Then I am going to surround each pen with walkways (they are pretty cheap). It will kill more space than I would like... but if it works I will let you know!

This may be late but... all animals need water. If you have water outside the fences they will leave the fences to get it. Put a water troughs inside your fences or they will move to get water.

i put plots around my fences as i hav noticed animals dont like plots and wont walk on them, also learnt to put them far away from other fenced animals as they tend to jump from one fenced place to another

I'm having the same problem!! There are no gaps in my fence and when I just leave my farm and visit a neighbor,come back to my animals clustered beside my wells. I expanded the fence and their is plenty of room,also I haven't even reached my animal population. I'm beginning to think this is a problem that "zynga" needs to check into.

Picture?type=square

I had the animal escaping problem too, but I think I may have got it figured out. I have been putting them in 1 fence by 1 fence pens so there is no gaps between fences. You are limited to how many will fit in each pen, but they seem to have been staying in place since I did that. Give it a try and see if it works for you too.

It just is NOT going to happen 100% of the time.

There ARE things you CAN do that seem to minimize the problem though. If you search here for threads about fence problems you will get TONS of hints. My only hint besides what is below (and has NEVER been fixed regardless of what zynga says BTW) is to avoid overcrowding... they really hate that and will wander every time if you squash them in IME.

I tried that, A. Jhin. It didn't work. The animals stay in the fence for a few days, then they start wandering out. I check, no fence gaps. Sometimes a fence gap will appear a couple of days after the animals get out, but it won't show up for some time. I close the gap, put the animals back, they stay put for a while but then eventually break out again.

They seemed to have fixed the fences. Here's what I suggest:
+Put all of your fences into storage.
+Check that there aren't random fence posts parts left around (you'll see just a post in the ground.) If there are some, "sell" them (you won't get any money, but they'll disappear.)
+Put down a fence.
+Put down the next fence. Make sure it's touching the previous fence -- if you move it a tiny bit closer to the previous fence it should turn red and not let you place it.
+ Finally, move things that attract animals inside the fence or away from the fenced in area (the water trough, the hen house, etc, seemingly warp animals outside the fence.)

Finally, there was a bug where the fences would load after the animals, so the animals would walk away before the fences loaded. That seems to have been fixed.
