    My hens had started laying again about 2 and a half weeks ago. Well, I have 11 hens and I was only getting 2-4 eggs a day! I kept looking and looking and couldn't find any hidden nests and I just couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting any more eggs than that. Found the hidden nest today, in the back of the garage behind some plywood I am planning on using to make another coop. There is a partial bale of hay back there and they have a nice dark quiet place to lay. I found 12 eggs on that nest! Little buggers!
