    Freaky thing happened this morning. My BA laid a large egg and then 3 hours later, she laid another larger egg! Both are well-formed with good solid shells. She's been laying a bunch of eggs, since she started around 4 weeks ago. Some days she lays an egg in LESS than 24 hours from her previous egg. It's freaking me out, because we've been having a stretch of cold dark rainy days and I would have expected the exact opposite. Today was WAY weird! Is this something I should be worried about?

    Occasionally there's a hiccup in the plumbing, so long as it's not a constant thing she'll be ok.
