    Yesterday I collected 6 eggs from 6 chickens. Unless 1 Americana is
    producing brown eggs, my RIR gave me 2 eggs. Is this possible?
    My 1st post, but I have found so much great
    info here!

    With chickens, everything is possible. Likely? No, possible, yes.

    [​IMG] You are gonna love it here. Yes it is possible. I have a Golden Comet that layed 2 eggs within about 1 min. of each other, I seen her do it so I know it can be done. No other chicken was in the nest.

    My RIR first egg was layed and a few hours later she laid another. It is possible but will not happen regularly.

    It's fitting that the kids named the RIR "Barbie" after a red headed friend of my wife. She is very fertile too!

    Thanks for your replies!
