What confuses me is the soiled condition of the eggs. Stolen nests seldom belong to multiple hens. However these eggs seem to be very soiled or else they are heavily mottled. Also the nest depression is incongruous with a normal hen nest. How sure are you that your hens laid these eggs, and how sure are you that some neighboring scamp is not pulling the down (or wool) over your eyes. I am assuming that is mud on the eggs but correct me if it is not.
