First, I would check out the nesting boxes and make sure there are no snakes in them. I read a story about this happening to someone else and it was because there was a chicken snake in the nesting box. If all seems fine there, I would then keep your girls locked in their coop for a couple of days so they are forced to lay in there. Good luck!
