So 1 of my 4 Leghorns laid a egg about 3 days ago but idk which one it was. They laid in there nest making loud noises then there quiet and then they walk out. I sit and watch them and they get in the nest get comfy then come out but no EGGS!!!!! I even put curtain so they can have more privacy. Are my chickens broken ???

The loud noise is probably what people refer to as the egg song. It goes back to their jungle fowl days when the flock would forage and a hen would return to the nest to lay while the flock would continue to forage.
After laying, she'd call out, "Where are you guys?". They'd return the same call, "Here we are."
