    not real rare,, what probably happened is that a couple of them waited till night to lay, then layed again the next day. every once a month or so i always get an extra egg [​IMG]

    I am such a nest box hog, I am always checking for eggs so mine probably will never sneak one in on me like that. [​IMG]

    I know it can happen because i seen my one pullet lay 2 eggs, one right after the other, it was awesome... Congrats on all those eggs.

    I hope that someday I can be so blessed as to get more eggs than hens.
