    I have a 7 month old red-laced wyandotte and she has been laying just about everyday since the end of august, she is my only laying hen....I think. I have 2 hens and the other one is not laying yet, I don't think. Recently I have been finding 2 eggs in the nest box, 1 large, 1 small. I originally thought my other hen has started laying, but my suspicions are telling me that my wyandotte is laying 2 eggs at a time. Is this possible with this breed or would the smaller eggs be coming from the other hen?

    Thank you.

    The smaller egg is a pullet egg coming from another hen.
