How many eggs can one chicken lay in a day? I really don’t know but am hoping some of you chicken experts can tell me. Here’s why I ask.
I’ve been getting four eggs per day for a few days. I was hoping to get five today. It’s not unusual to get three in the morning and one in the afternoon. This morning I got three . . as usual. I went back out when I got home from lunch and a chicken was sitting on the nest so I left her alone. I went back after about 30 minutes and there were three eggs in that one box. All three were real close to each other.
The three darker ones were the ones I got this morning. The three pinkish eggs were the ones all in one box. I’m thinking that when I get the speckled looking eggs, they’re from a new layer. The one on the left if real speckled and small, typical of a new layer. The one on the right is a bit speckled and the one in the middle hardly has any specks. The three pinkish ones are kinda unusual. I did get a pink one yesterday but all the rest have been brown.
Could my Ameraucanas be laying pink eggs? Could one hen have layed all three of those pink eggs? The Ameraucanas have very small combs but they are starting to get brighter so if they’re not laying already, they should be real soon, right?
