Hi, I'm totally new to this forum, hoping someone can give me some advice. We have one little black silkie hen, about a year old, and she sleeps inside the house with us (we've spoiled her rotten ever since she had a traumatic experience--her flock was attacked by raccoons and she was the only one out of five who survived). She has always been tiny and has never laid any eggs...until yesterday. We put her outside in the morning and were thrilled to see two eggs in her coop when we checked on her later in the day. I searched the whole yard thoroughly, just to see if she'd possibly been laying for a while and we just hadn't noticed. Nothing, no other eggs. Looks like she laid two on her first try. Then this morning she woke up early and was screeching at me (she's usually very quiet and likes to sleep in), pecked at the door until I let her out. It was pouring rain, and she's never asked to go out before, she prefers being inside. I checked on her about two hours later, after the rain had let up, and there were FOUR eggs in the coop! All the eggs look healthy, with hard shells, she seems fine, but I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that our tiny little girl just laid four eggs in two hours. Should I be worried? Should she see a vet? Is it possible that she has just been backed up and didn't quite no how to lay, so now she's clearing out a whole bunch at once?
