    In one day 7 of my girls decided to lay under the wheelbarrow parked under the open end of the barn. I guess they were on strike from the laying boxes that day. One of my EE's will lay on one of the hay bales in the hay stall. She dug out a nest in it. If I let out in the early am. that is the only place she will lay. Go figure!!!

    Behind a down spout under the porch. Had 7 eggs in it.
    Up on a stack of bales of hay. Had scooped out a dish sized nest.
    In a plastic storage container filled with hay.
    Thats all I can think of for now.
