    My chicken Buttercup just laid two eggs! She was acting funny an hour ago so i brought her inside. Her beak was hanging open, she seemed stressed, and she was walking funny. i gave her water and some cucumber. Just went to check on her and found two eggs in the carrier with her, one regular egg and a soft shelled one that had broken open. She's eating that one now. So glad she's okay. But this is sure one for the record books!

    Quote:OMG, poor thing. That had to have been mighty uncomfortable. I'd keep an eye out for egg binding with her. Sounds like her "egg timer" system isn't functioning properly. :eek:

    As far as i know, this is the first time for her. She's about 3-1/2 years old. Most in that group don't lay regularly. i'm lucky to get a couple eggs every few days out of those 11 girls.
