    found my first egg this morning. then saw my BO setting in an old dog house that had hay in it acting funny and clucking and lifting her hind end up and down. when I had first looked there were no eggs. about an hour later there were not one but TWO eggs she was sitting on. Is it possible for a six month old hen to lay two eggs in one day?

    It's not impossible, but it is very unlikely that she laid two eggs in the same day.
