    I don't have Poultry any more and this weekend I was tearing down my old coops and I found the hole/den under one of the coops it's about a foot in diameter and goes about 2 Feet deep then levels off into a a little cave-like cubby, flat ground and rounded walls. Any ideas what could have made this?

    It's easy to find out - stick you hand in and see what bites it - then grab it and pull it out - you got my interest - let us know what it was - [​IMG]

    Probably nothing "lives" there.
    Most likely it was a canine digging for food

    My dogs can dig a hole that size in under a minute​
