    Within hours of each other. I am absolutely positive, as she has eggs that are distinctive from all the others. No wonder she was freaking out on me last night at bedtime. I cleaned out the coop this morning and found a stone cold Maisie egg in the nesting box. Amazing!!!

    She is a 7.5 month-old Barred Rock who lays almost every day. Go, Maisie!

    I told her she could take today off.

    I had one do that she was a RSL... I could not believe it either... Also had another one lay an egg the size of a quail egg and she had already given 1 that day... Broke it open and it was all white, no yolk in sight... But the few that have laid 2 a day had yolks... They never cease to amaze for sure....

    These were two normal full size eggs. Little overachiever....
