2 Eggs in one Day !!

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by CountryRoosterUSA, May 29, 2012.

  1. I have 5 hens, all lay big brown eggs except for the white leghorn which is a white egg. I checked the 3 nest boxes early this morning and they were all empty. I went back and checked them this afternoon around 3 pm, and had 6 eggs all in one nest box. There was 4 brown eggs and 2 big white eggs.. My leghorn had layed 2 eggs in one day. Thats the first time any of my chickens has done that.. Don't know how she did it ,but I think it's pretty cool.

    I'm jealous [​IMG] I keep hearing about hens laying twice in one day, but mine won't. What's your secret? [​IMG]
