I've recently been letting my 2 hens and rooster free range from morning til evening and now I have no idea where they are laying the eggs! We found a stash of 15 eggs under a broken branch in a small hole in the ground but my husband disposed of the branch and now they are doing it somewhere else and I have yet to find them! We have a huge problem with oak snakes and I feel like we are offering a buffet of eggs somewhere since I can't find them not to mention our family could use the eggs. How do you encourage them to lay in a place that you would prefer? I don't want to pen them up but I'm going nuts trying to play find the hidden eggs! Any suggestions would be great!
