is this the first year you've had them for mating season???

they are really good at hiding the eggd i noticed...

one of mine would lay her egg where ever she happened to be... befre i moved i found 4 eggs from her, in 4 different places.... and not in made nests either... hte middle of the walkway, under a tree, on top of the neighbors shed....

go on a serious egg hunt, or sit out latter in the evening and watch where they go...

There's been a couple of threads about this this year. Everyone seems to be slow on them, myself included. I have 11 breeder age hens (all 3-7 years old) only 4 are laying so far.

Of course yearling wont lay for you at all, and 2 year olds may be slow if they were a late season hatch.

All are 3 years and up, and no they can not possibly hid their eggs (They are in a coop). I had eggs last year.
