    Thanks everyone! She is the alpha female of the bunch and definitley tries to crow every morning....she's the biggest but lays the smallest eggs and sometimes drops 2 a day.

    Chickens can only pop out 1 egg at most a day.

    actually there is known to be hens who do this, lay 2 very small eggs as opposed to 1 normal-large eggs. they are also more prone to ending their laying cycle early.

    IMO she looks to be the oldest of the 3 CQ's....one is going thru her first big moult and the other lays teradactyl eggs 1 a day or so. I don't know tho....it's all a learning process
