Discovered this mound as I stepped in my Araucana pen this morning. I am pretty sure it is a mole hill, but wanted to make sure. I am unfamiliar with smaller pests/predators like rats and mink so I don't know if they can dig up mounds like this or not. I have barn cats, so I would highly doubt it is a rat, but I've read rats can dig so... There were no footprints or scat around, no signs of any other disturbance. Outside of the fence about 6' away there were 2 smaller mounds 2' apart from each other. We've been above freezing for about 4 days now, but still kind of surprised to see mole activity in December. Could this be something other than a mole? That's a 4 month old cockerel behind it for size comparison.
