    What part are you questioning? [​IMG] $15 is reasonable for laying hens and I know a man very well.....honest, good person, KNOWS his animals well.....had a hen who liked to lay 2 eggs a day quite regularly.

    I have always heard that hens can only lay one egg a day. I can see where it would be possible once in a blue moon because of the cycle but have never known of any that laid 2 regularly.

    His really did. [​IMG] And to me it is surprising it doesn't happen MORE often. It seems no less strange than double yolk eggs.....still getting two of everything except the shell. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wish my RIR's layed like those, they are good layers but are nowhere close to that.

    If my hens laid 2 eggs a day each, then I would only need half the amount of hens and could save on feed costs.

    There is actually a town called Two Egg, Florida named in honor of a hen that laid two eggs a day. It is also the birthplace of the actress Fay Dunaway. It was a live birth; she did not hatch.

    I used to get 10-12 eggs a day with 9 hens. I still have some of the same hens and get zero now. Some hens will occasionally lay 2 a day.
