They lay eggs under my cabinet. I leave my door open so they can come and go as they please when they want to lay because they won't lay anywhere else. They will cry at my door until I let them in. But I noticed I felt like I was short some eggs even though I have 3 dozen in the fridge. And a few times when my chicken comes out of the nesting box there aren't any eggs in there! :l

That's pretty normal.
Yes, normal for a hen to go into nest but not lay.....
...but....

I'm confused...they come into your house to lay eggs....and there's a nest in there?
