Hidden eggs

eggs hidden Jul 13

Every summer I have the same problem. Some of my hens and ducks decide to find very well hidden places in the allotment to lay their eggs. Last week I found 14 under a tree. Yesterday I found the ones in the picture above under some branches in the drainage trench I have not yet finished filling with gravel. I reckon there are more eggs somewhere. The production figures are a bit low at the moment to suggest otherwise. However, a thorough weeding and search operation today turned up nothing. I'll have to keep searching.
