Basically, a tomb with big stones around.

"A dolmen, also known as a cromlech, portal tomb, portal grave or quoit, is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of two or more megaliths supporting a large flat horizontal capstone ("table"), although there are also more complex variants." (Wikipedia)

Drumlins are ice age features formed by moving glaciers. They formed egg-shaped hills. They are often seen in clusters, known as "Baskets of Eggs". This was my wrong answer. A "Hen's Nest" conjures up the same image. However, the Dutch "hunebedden" are Dolmens, not Drumlins.

Why a hen should want to lay its eggs in one, I am not sure. Its confusing !
