    I have a hen that just started laying eggs yesterday. Today she had 3 in her nest. I only have two birds that are laying and they have different eggs (one blue, one brown). What would cause this?

    I was thinking that, but I have 3 laying: one brown eggs, one blue and one green. Maybe she did one last night and two today? Is that normal?

    Certainly possible for one the night before and 2 in one day. I have a hen that will lay 2 in one day occasionally, but it's not the norm. Do you have any pullets ready to start laying?
