Okay, those of you who have more experience (and knowledge) about chickens, one of my Rhode Island Reds lays 2 eggs each morning. She lays the first one around 7 a.m. and the next one around 11:00 a.m. When I bought the hens, the guy said he had one, didn't know which, that was a double yolker. I haven't heard back from him if he still has that hen. Could it be that she was the double-yolker and is now laying 2 eggs / day? I'm not complaining, 3 eggs from two hens isn't such a hard thing to take--especially since the 2 I collect at 7 a.m. are still WARM. (How much fresher can you get?). Everything I've read says they can lay 2 eggs in 24 hours, but that this shortens the time that they will lay eggs over their lifetimes. Anyone know why this hen is laying 2 eggs in such a short period of time? Or is she just "Fertile Myrtle"? Or, is it because she's only ~30 weeks and hasn't regulated yet? These are nice sized eggs, btw. And tasty <g>.
