    Went out to check for eggs today and found four. Not unusual except they were all brown. We have two buff orps one rir and an Easter egger that always lays nice light blue eggs. Apparently one of the others layed two today.

    Though it's rare some hens can and do sometimes lay 2 eggs in a 24 hour period. Occasionally you may get a hen that does this on a regular basis, but that is very unusual.
