Is it possible for a pullet to lay 2 eggs in 1 day? My wife went out to collect the eggs and there were 2 hens laying and no eggs. I went out later and found 2 eggs where wifey said a N.H. Red was setting. Is it possible for a chicken to lay 2 eggs at a time? I know pullets are capable of doing strange things before their inner workings are working correctly but 2 eggs at a time seems a little much. What do you think?

We got 3 in a day a couple of times when we only had 2 hens, so it is possible, but the extra one came in the late afternoon. Your girls just laid in the same nest when no one was looking.
