I really hope the little 'darlings' have terrible tummy aches after their 
rampage Wendy!
Don't worry about the daffodil bulbs, they are mighty tough, and will still 
send up stalks from lower down. You should lift them up when they are 
dormant, because the deeper they are, the fewer increase they will have. 
(This is why daffodils are planted more deeply for naturalising purposes)
I haven't had a similar problem here for years, but kept dairy goats, which 
could escape from 7ft high fences, and did the occassional 'gourmet tour' of 
the veg. garden.
I hope your irises make a full recovery.
Cheers, Jan
