Why are my chickens laying more eggs?!

    Probably a silly question. I have 6 pullets, born in March. For the last couple of months, I have usually been getting 5 eggs per day. Every so often, I only get 4, but never less. Well, this week, all of a sudden, I am getting 6 eggs per day most days!! Of course, I'm thrilled about this, and I'm praising my girls emphatically, but why the extra egss? Does this indicate anything strange, like they are going to be molting or something? Do chickens just have weird laying flukes? Will this continue? Just curious!!
