    only if you have 3 or 4 hens.. [​IMG]

    On a serious note... An australorp hen in England was supposed to have laid 361 eggs in 365 days.. My personal experience with them is that they are very good layers.

    Once in a blue moon, a hen could lay 2 eggs in one day... one first thing in the morning and one late in the evening.. doesn't happen very often.. it would be physically impossible for a hen to lay 4 eggs in one day..
