hmmm, we have been letting our girl outside recently, and thought she QUIT laying. we usually get an egg about every other day. then one day we were like, hmm, where is jerri (the turkey hen) and saw her laying down beside a log in the woods. later, she came back to the barn. when we went to look where she was laying, there, nothing. the following day she did the same thing. upon much closer observation, we found she had COVERED her eggs (3) with leaves and they were NOT visible without moving some of the leaves. Watch where she goes and check that she isn't covering them up somewhere.
