Is it possible that they are laying somewhere that you haven't looked? I remodeled part of the barn around my coops last year and the hens went on strike. I was only finding about 1/4 the usual number of eggs. I still don't know whether they quit laying for a while or were just hiding the eggs as they also free range during the day. Could yours be rejecting the nest boxes as they did the roosts?
