But my back porch is only half fence in, so a cat can jump over it, the whole is small but small like a mouse, any one have any thoughts?

Oh and What ever it is it is eating the trash, i have chcikens on my back porch that YES are spoiled and now i an freaked out that waht ever it is is going to go for my chickens, I caged in a couple that sleep on the porch and the other sleep up on the AC.

I am think skunk or raccoon? There are no smells so then i rule out skunk.

Moles do that. They burrow underground and push the soil up at regular intervals along the tunnel they are making. Go to Google Images and search "mole hills" and see if it looks like those.

could also be a chipmunk,or even a snake. the chipmunks like to eat whatever your feeding the chickens,(especially scratch) & snakes like eggs.
