I suggest writing off those missing eggs and start leaving them in the coop/pen until the Hens lay each day, then let them out to free range after you can see that they've all laid. You may have to skip a day of letting them free range every now and then because some of them will lay too late in the day (my Hens lay a little later and later each day until they skip a day). I do this with my breeding flocks, and egg collecting is a piece of cake. The flock complains, but it definitely it beats getting scratched up. (I'm making this suggestion assuming that you coop your flock each night... if you don't coop them at night and they sleep in the trees.... well then happy egg hunting, and be sure to wear thick, protective clothing, lol).
