    Is it possible that my hens can lay more than one egg in a day? It seems like when a few of them are in the nest I think they lay 2 eggs at a time....is this possible?

    If you mean two eggs at the same time from one hen, I would think that's unlikely.

    Imp- I've twice in 6 years gotten 5 eggs from 4 hens.
