I have a hen in the house healing from an injury and when I went to let her out to stretch a little while ago I discovered she laid two eggs this morning. Does that just happen sometimes or is there something that causes it?
What would make a hen lay two eggs in a short amount of time?
Were they normal in appearance? Sometimes an egg will get stuck in the chute and another egg will come up behind it, usually resulting in a problem. I had a hen become egg-bound, and after a warm soak, she "gave birth" to a normal egg, following an hour later with a shelless egg.
If those eggs were normal, and your hen is behaving normally, chalk it up to being just a fluke.
I don't know if I should post this or here sense I didn't start this thread, if I a fend I am sorry but I have the same thing happen to me today, I think??? only on a bigger scale, I went out and collected today and I had 28 eggs!!!!!!!! first I have never got more then 13 at a time, 2nd,... I only have 21 hens..... whats up with that??? I changed the bedding in nest boxes yesterday and didn't find any hidden, and I collect every day so no leftovers... I have never heard of this, course I am kinda new to my own chickens. ... I tried to post a pic of them but couldn't get it to load is it really possible my hens laid them or could the neighbors hens came over for a visit?
would my hens even allow that??
and if so, should I give the extra eggs back?
