    [​IMG] I have 5 hens and I got 6 eggs today. They are 30 weeks old. I didn't think this would be posable. I check the coop twice a day. Once in the AM and once in the PM when I put them up for the night. WOW 6 eggs! I keep counting them,lol

    One may be from a late, after the rounds, layer last PM. I have had that happen. Gotta remember they are on about a 23 hour cycle. I think that's right...[​IMG] otherwise, you gots a heckuva good laying girlie [​IMG]

    I got 2 from one girl once, and the second one wasn't very dark colored (brown egg layer). Otherwise it was fine though, and perfectly tasty!

    I did have a leghorn lay one first thing in the morning and then again just before heading up to the roost...

    Couldn't believe it myself.

    I have an EE hen that has been laying for about 3 weeks. Twice now she has skipped laying for a day and then layed 2 eggs & last week she skipped 2 days and then layed 3 eggs, one in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. She is the only EE and all the eggs were blue/green, so it had to be her!
