Do you free range? If so, are you sure they’re not laying in hidden nests? They don’t need anything more than their layers feed and oyster shells, scratch and scraps can upset the balance if overfed.
I agree, chickens can find some nasty laying spots. I had one lay in a bush, under the porch patio, and under an old tire:confused:. They don't know better. Looks as if you are going to have to go on an Easter egg hunt...if they free range.
