Two eggs!

Guess what? Today there were two eggs in the nest box!

Apparently it takes 25 hours for a chicken to lay an egg, so one chicken can not lay 2 eggs in the same day.

We are pretty sure that it is Kiev who layed this one as Molly is still a bit young (we think).

This egg (lower one in picture) looked different to any we have had previously in that it is slightly speckled.

Interesting to note that even though they have enough for a nest box each (they are very spoilt chickens as the suggested ratio is one nest box for 3 chickens!), they chose to lay their eggs in the same nest box.

Can't help wondering if Kiev knew what she was about to do or just felt 'a bit strange'......
