Some hens in the nests. Pecker is in Sour's favorite nest and she clucked greatly about that fact. I put her in the one she is in now. Most likely she'll wait until pecker leaves before laying her egg. If she can wait that long.

The hen (Sweet) trying to go in the nest box isn't laying, she's waiting for her buddy to.

In the past, I have seen a young hen lay two eggs in 1 sitting. The eggs were about the size of a ping pong ball. When opened, the yolks were clear yet defined. Enough where you could tell the difference between the white and yolk.
