A few days ago I went out to our flock of 4 for a mid-day check-in. Somehow there were 7 eggs! All were healthy, a good size, and not soft shelled. The nesting box had been cleaned out that morning and there were no eggs then. We have 2 cuckoo marans and 2 ameraucanas. This was the first time this has happened and also the first time 1 of our cuckoo marans had laid after her winter "break". There were 4 brown eggs and 3 blue eggs. (Brown=marans, Blue=Ameraucanas)
So...Is it possible for a chicken to lay more than 1 egg in 1 day?
Thanks for your thoughts!
