    So, do armadillos pose of danger to chickens? I have one living under my shed right nest to the coop and run.

    Thanks

    well i know that Armadillos diet consists of insects, grubs, and other invertebrates so i doubt that you would find your chicken being eaten but they might get into a few fights

    They may dig a tunnel for them to escape or let predators in. They eat only bugs and such. Those huge sharp claws are only for digging.
