Production reds, hatched end of March this year, first egg middle of July. Normally get 5/5, occasionally we get 4/5, but 2 days ago 3/5 and yesterday 2/5. So low that even though I got home from work after dark and DH had already collected, I went out and checked myself -- under the guise of checking on my ladies, not that he would have missed any . Nope, I even took the flashlight and checked in the corners, even stirred the wood chips, no hidden eggs. This is a new coop, still installing walls, so no hiding places. This morning,8 a.m. 5/5! They are normally mid morn layers, lucky to have 1-2 by 8 am. Then went out at 10 am to collect bantam eggs and got 2/4 of those and two more large brown eggs!!!!!!!! Has anyone else ever had that happen? Did several them have a pile up at egg exit site and then drop off the extra this a.m.? Got 7/5? All in the normal laying spot, none hidden. Just curious. Average out, not abnormal, but just strange. Thanks for input. Ps, I thanked all the girls for their extra effort, and I'm home alone w 5 and 6 year old, they were still in bed, so no pranks!
