    [​IMG] So this morning I went out to gather eggs and found three eggs! I am pretty sure my one hen Maxine laid them since my other hen hasn't started laying yet! Is this possible? I know I didn't miss any from the other day. They were all normal eggs too!

    Greetings from Kansas and :welcome. Great to have you here. You stated you don't think the other hen started laying yet. How old is she? And you said you didn't miss any from the other day. If the other day was yesterday and you didn't miss any, I'd say the other hen has started as I don't think Maxine could have layed 3 in a day. Good luck with your mystery. :)

    Also agree with Redsox, hens often share the same nest.
