2 eggs in 1 day???

Recommended Posts

Hi there


I just wondered if a hen might lay 2 eggs in one day? :?:


Yesterday both Dave and Fifi laid an egg in the morning, between 7 and 9am, then, when I put them to bed around 6 there was another, huge egg in the nest, the biggest I've ever seen :shock:

This morning, between 7 and 9am another 2.

I wonder if maybe one of my girls could have laid 2 in 1 day :?:

Isabelle has not started laying yet, or has she? She has not done any crouching at all so far..........so I don't think it could be her????


I am really puzzled by this as I thought hens only laid one egg a day.

Anyone out there had this same thing happen to them :?::?

They can lay 2 in one day....one very early and one very late.....but is happens only now and then.


I have had 9 eggs from 8 hens three or four times......then the next day maybe only 6.


It could be Isabelle. They don't all crouch as you approach.....although most do. My Artemis Fowl doesn't.

Thanks for that eglunteen :D

Come to think of it the 2 eggs this morning were brown and Fifi's eggs are creamy so maybe Isabelle has started laying and it was Fifi who laid the huge egg yesterday afternoon, what a clever girl!

I guess I will find out in the next few days.

Having 3 eggs a day is just marvelous!!!
