    i have not had a hen that lays 2 eggs in 1 day in like 2 years. I was woundering if any1 else had a double layer and what breed is she?

    I haven't ever had a hen that lays 2 eggs in one day. It usually takes them 24-26 hours to form an egg, so it's very rare that they'll lay 2 eggs in one day.
    However, I have had some double-yolkers, if that's what you're talking about. They were mostly from Red Stars pullets that just started laying, but I haven't had any recently.
    Hope this helps.
