My hens went on a laying binge yesterday. I was shocked to see seven eggs, (all in the nest for a change), but from my six hens. A few hours later I was surprised to hear the laying cackling that they do when ever they lay. Checked the nest, and there was two more eggs. Later in the afternoon there was yet another, this time in the run area. 10 EGGS from SIX hens?? I couldn't believe it, (although I have heard of the odd case of a hen laying twice in one day). At first I thought that someone in the family was playing a trick on me, but there was no eggs missing from the fridge. I have started to let them out into the bigger run the last few days as the temperatures have really climbed the last few days. I thought they may find moisture areas to dig in to cool down. I don't know if this has a bearing on it or not? What should I expect now? Should I expect no eggs for today as they overdid it yesterday, or back to the regular six eggs? Is this a sign of something to come, like they are about to go into molt? What have others experienced??
