She was probably unhappy with your changing her world.  Or, she's in a molt or mini-milt, or something like a snake is eating them, or she's laying somewhere else.

What do you mean by a snake is eating them? And i think its the third one because she keeps going into the bush...?

There are snakes that eat eggs whole.  If you think she's laying in the bushes tail her like she is a criminal.
