I've been reading on here about the quantity of eggs that hens will lay, but what about the location? Today I got three eggs from my three hens. But all three eggs were in the same laying box. Is this normal? I've read that sometimes a chicken will lay more than one egg, but will they squat over another hens egg and lay one beside it? This is not unusual for me either. There are usually two in one box, but sometimes there are three.
