Diane's idea of enclosing corms in a wire cage is not new to me. I tried 
it, but I found that the emerging shoots often ran into the wire and became 
deformed and damaged.  I do cover some of my most precious crocuses 
(mathewii, moabiticus, etc.) with raised domes of hardware cloth 
(small-mesh woven wire) but haven't had time yet to make these for all the 
pots, of which I have several hundred.
