    Are you sure she doesn't actually have eggs somewhere? Can you really not find it or do you mean you know where it is but she attempted to hide it from you. You could always give her her actual eggs. I'm sure she's worried about them. She knows they're out there and just because there's "another nest" in your run/coop, it's not the nest she made so she doesn't see it as hers.
