    I have 6 hens who lay like clockwork. For the last 3 days Ive gotten 7 eggs. At first I though maybe I had missed an egg from the day before, but now that it has been 3 days in a row, it must be that one of them is laying 2 eggs!

    I would kill for a flock of those. Have to replace them a bit sooner but who cares! [​IMG]
