I am a bit confused. I have 4 average sized chickens in my back yard. They have the run of the yard which is about 400sqm. Recently they have started laying lots of eggs. Sunday afternoon i went down and collected 8 eggs from there nest which i thought is quite a lot as they usually only have 4-5 per day but then 2 days later when i went to collect the eggs there were 13. Every one i ask has said not possible, they could not lay that many so i wonder am i getting egg fairies??? They are nesting so does this make them lay more??
