Dh calls me at work and tells me that he thinks Squidy our Black sexlink laid two eggs today.. I know it's not supposed to be possible, but have others had this happen? We know it's hers, because the other 3 gals lay either pullet eggs or banty EE eggs, and her eggs are HUGE!

Anyone?

Its possible, but not normal, think of their reproduction system as an assembly line, basically she let 2 eggs down the line instead of one, this is more likely to happen in production or Industrial breeds.
