    They burrow and have tunnels. I can't put poisen inside the pens or traps so any suggestions.

    I do not have confirmation on whether the scent bothers chickens but there is a product called Mouse Magic by Bonide (googles easily) that is a nontoxic repellent with peppermint and spearmint oil. A number of Ace Hardware stores carry it. I am using it but far enough away from where the chickens sleep in case it would be bothersome to them. Seems to work.
