Ron : I enjoy all of your info about chickens. I am new at the game. I acquired 3 hens in April and they have been doing theirjob providing me with enough eggs that I need. But I suspect that my Buff Orpington is laying 2 Eggs at the same sitting. Is that possible? I occassionaly find 2 Eggs sitting side by side like the photo. Ron.
My Reply : I have heard of hens laying two eggs in the same day (several hours apart) but as far as I know it is not possible to lay two eggs in the same sitting – but if I am wrong it wouldn’t be the first time 🙂 It is a lot more likely that they are sharing the same nest box.
