So I picked up my two hens this past Sunday. Everything is going great! I've gotten 3 eggs so far in 4 full days of having them. To me that was completely unexpected and well, great for me. Since I didn't need to wait for them to get used to their new home so I can enjoy the biggest benefit of owning chickens, so today I noticed the hens weren't in the pen so I walked over to see what they were up to and I noticed both hens were in the nesting box at the same time. Based on when the last two eggs were layed I figured one of the hens was laying. So I went back in my house and gave them space. After a few minutes I notices both hens were back outside in the pen. So of course I went right to the coop and checked the nesting box. Sure enough there was an egg. Why were both hens in the nesting box if just one was laying?
