    [​IMG]Hello from Florida.

    Wow! Two girls and three eggs!!!!!

    If you let them range around, their coop area needs are smaller than if they are to be kept in a coop and tractor in which you will want more space for them.

    Glad you joined us

    Hi and :welcome

    Yes, I agree it's nothing to worry about. Just good luck. :p Sometimes chickens will lay more than once in a day especially when they're young.
