She may not be able to lay in the nesting boxes, how many do you have? How many hens do you have?

We have 4 nesting boxes and three hens. There's no reason why she couldn't.

Hmm, she may feel insecure laying and wants a "safe" place to lay. My hen tends to do the same thing and I'm still trying to "cure" her.

Ok. Well I just found her nest a few minutes ago. She sang the egg song and I found her just as she was coming out from under the workshop. Uggggh. We'll never get those eggs.
