More than likely they are laying them in their dirt bath area and than dirt is kicked over them when one takes a good scratch in the dirt.

Put some fake eggs in your nestboxes to draw your hens to lay in them instead of on the ground.

New layers are notorious for laying in odd areas, I'm sure they initially have no idea what is going on.
