I would like to add my two cents:  deer will and do eat hyacinths once they
begin to open.  I think it's the fragrance that attracts them.  They then
eat the flowers and some of the foliage.

I've had deer sample daffodils but only a few flowers.  Sometimes I find
the spit-out flowers several feet from the daffodils...but not always.

Rabbits and squirrels could care less about hyacinths and daffodils.
