    Could they be hiding the eggs? Sometimes if one hen lays eggs in a particular place the other hens will lay there too.

    My girls like to hide their eggs in the nest boxes sometimes. I also have a golf ball in each nest box. Every day when I go out to collect the eggs I feel around the nest boxes for hiden eggs.
