    My California White gave me two eggs yesterday. She is 3 years old and this is the third time she has done this. One was smaller than usual and the other was smaller than that. It's very cool.

    They can do that, I think it takes about 12 hours for a hen to make an egg. She could have laid her first one at 5:00am then at the evening laid her second one.

    Very cool! Though it doesn't happen often it's pretty awesome when it does!
     
  4. Congrats!! Let's hear a big roiund of applause for California White. (Is that a cross of Leghorn and California Gray?) What color are the eggs?
