Two of my hens, who have been here for years, are suddenly laying outside the box. What would cause this sudden shift?

My first guess is that something spooked them, and now they won't use it. See any snakes??:eek:
First what happened to that adorable fuzzy butt avatar? :)
Saw a snake a month ago but none recently. I've read a change in routine can do it. I've just started integrating pullets with them. Not sure if that would matter. It's not like the pullets go into nesting box.

I change my avatar from time to time. I still have it on my computer!! I bet they've seen something. Check and make sure that the place is predator proof, and have you noticed any eggs missing?
