I just collected the eggs, and it's been about 18 hours since the last time, mind you. There were 5 eggs in there from 4 hens. How often does this happen? I always thought that a chicken's egg laying machinery allowed her to lay about once every 26 hours or so. But, I know I completely emptied the nest box last night. I only got 2 eggs from 4 hens yesterday, which suggests that someone was going to lay late last night or really early this morning. Still, doesn't this seem odd?
