    I adopted 3 hens from HSMO on Saturday. They laid 3 on Saturday, 1 Sunday, 1 Monday and none Tuesday or Wednesday. Should I have them looked at by the vet? Are they maybe just laying in the woods? I found the other eggs very easily (by the coop and in the coop).

    Look around - they found some other place to lay. No need to go to the vet. Do you have a cozy nest area for them? That may be what's going on. Someplace private. Try to put golf balls or plastic eggs where you want them to lay and most of the time they will go back to it. [​IMG]

    Check for snakes. I had two that were having a buffet everyday. They were also coming in for water as is been so dry here.
