    So how does having only 3 chickens give me 4 eggs LOL! Is there a sneaky Homeless chicken coming and laying in the nest? Doubtful since my chicken house is completely enclosed ....So Anyone like to explain it to me? thanks will love to read the comments on this one. Did one of the chickens decide hey... I got two in me today! Is this possible to lay two eggs in one day?
    thank you chicky!

    It IS possible for a hen to lay twice in one day, as I found out for myself! [​IMG] I think it was either my BLRW (Blue Laced Red Wyandotte) or Partridge Rock who somehow managed to crank out two eggies back to back. Isn't it amazing how that can happen? [​IMG]

    Darn tootin' I do! [​IMG] They're so pretty, it's hard not to drool over them! [​IMG] We don't have room now, with 28 hens, 24 chicks, and 9 ducks, but maybe someday.
