    one of my chickens started laying eggs today but recently I noticed that one of my birds is laying two eggs at a time, is anything wrong, she is still acting normally not even broody.
    I am pretty positive it is her because she will go up to her nesting box and all the other chickens will stay down.

    They produce one egg approximately every 25 hours. Once in a great while, a hen lays two eggs in a day due to some error in the reproductive system, but I've never heard of a hen doing this more than one day in a row.
