    I believe moles eat grubs & larvae, that live in the ground, not eggs.

    The moles may have dug the hole, but snakes will use them to hunt the moles and to get into your coop/run area. The snakes will eat your eggs. Rats and mice can also use the hole for access.

    & snakes, squirrels, some other birds, small possums.

    What do you wish to know about moles?

    want to add maybe weasels, ferrets, and other small carnivores like that.

    Chickens are not in any danger from moles. May stumble over the holes. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I would imagine that if chickens got ahold of a mole they could easily kill it and/or eat it.
