Is it possible for a hen to lay two eggs in one day? I noticed last night when I closed up the chickens that there were no eggs in the coop. I checked again this morning when I let them out and there were no eggs. Tonight however when I got home from work, there were 2 eggs, side by side, in perfect shape, from one chicken. I know that they belong to one chicken because my other hens lays eggs of different colour. Now I'm thinking, did I possibly just miss seeing the first egg (unlikely as I checked several times), or has she laid two eggs on the same day. Ideas?
