You see several eggs in front of the nest boxes.

Nest boxes are often closed between 15:00 and sunrise to prevent the birds from soiling them. If the nest stays closed too long in the morning, some hens will lay their eggs in front of the door.

If you see that happening often, open the nest boxes a bit earlier.
