    You've got more than one Isa Brown laying. Even in a prolific breed, it still takes about 24 hours for an egg to be produced.

    I don't know if it is physically possible for a hen to lay that many eggs a day.[​IMG] Are you positive no other hens are laying. Some hens will lounge in the boxes without laying eggs. Young hens will often go in and out throughout the day and can hours before they actually lay. Interesting if it really is happening, and would be a record for sure.

    Ah, that does make more sense. They can double and even triple ovulate in one day, usually they turn into double yolk eggs. Since the application of the shell takes the longest, shell less eggs can be made in hours. I would assume after a few weeks she will become more normal, but might lay double yolk eggs more often. Sex links are egg laying machines.
