My chickens (13 on 7 acres) stopped laying eggs, or so I thought. They were hiding them. I found 32 in a 3 different spots. But now they either quit laying or found a spot so uncannily hidden that they've effectively outsmarted me. Why have they quit using their nesting box. It use to be only for nesting but some new birds started roosting in there. The new birds were the only ones I found. The others lay blue/grn eggs and I haven't seen those in a month or so. They are molting. The older ladies. Not the 5 new ones. I need to determine how to get them back in the nesting house, why they'e doing this and where the heck are they hiding them?
