    Ok, so this morning we got 6 eggs from our six hens! [​IMG]
    That's perfect.
    However, this afternoon, we got 4 more eggs!
    I am positive that different chickens laid the eggs, too! 6 for 6 is great, but 10 for 6?
    should i be worried? they are all hard and big! this has been happening often, lately
    any advice?

    Um, just regular pellets from "The Feed Bin". Hmmm, suspicious... Im positive no other chickens have access to our yard.

    How likely that the eggs you got this morning were really from yesterday afternoon? That's what I would think if it were me, [​IMG] If not wow good for you and your hens!

    Well, I guess I didn't make something clear. Yesterday morning, we actually got 7 eggs, but I know that one was from last night, because I was putting the girls to bed at about 10, and I saw one egg. I was, however, too lazy to get it. So in the morning we actually got 7 eggs, but one was left over from the previous night. Im pretty sure no one layed after 10.
