Animal Farm

Explain why the animals confessed to being traitors. Or is there any explanation?

would this be corect for the answer

The four pigs who are taken first are the same four who had disagreed previously with Napoleon's decisions. They probably are guilty of not wholeheartedly supporting Napoleon's policies. Next, the three hens who had led the egg rebellion confess, as do many others, to crimes against the state. death might be seen as a release for these poor animals at this point.

You might want to add that they are "pressured" into confessing - they are shown to be enemies of the state if they argue against the leader's position. Certainly Napoleon becomes the "tyrant" of the group and he understands the power of peer pressure and the way in which they have to give in, especially because if they do not others might be hurt.
