Has this ever happened to anyone. I have just 3 hens. Yesterday only one layed an egg. Today Two Underdeveloped eggs and two regular eggs. My girls are about 20 weeks old. Is it possible that the one that didn't lay yesterday layed 2! Today??? CRAZY

These are the three from earlier today and the one from tonight was a regular brown egg (good shell)

OK weird they all came out hours apart from each other. Mine just started laying two weeks ago and the third just started today. I check the coop like a newbie every few hours lol

Yes. 4 eggs from 3 pullets, so the two eggs were from 1 hen. After a few lays, the kinks are worked out typically.
