    [​IMG] glad you joined us! I've never had a chicken lay 2 eggs in one day, but I guess it's possible.

    Welcome! I have one that has layed twice in a day a couple of times or she will lay 1 extra extra large egg with two yolks. I knpw its her because she is the only one laying blue eggs. ;)

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    New layers can release two yolks a day for a while till they get their egg machines in gear. Takes a couple months, but they should start laying normally soon.

    Enjoy your wonderful flock and welcome to ours!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Congratulations on getting those eggs. Some of the breeds or hybrids with really high lay rates will occasionally produce two eggs in the same day when they are at their laying peak. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of hens do you have?
