I am up to 5 eggs now, and all from one chicken as best as I can tell. I'm going to be swimming in eggs as soon as all eight chickens are laying. I find the whole process amazing. I can't believe I am getting daily eggs from a bunch of wacky chickens. It's like a daily easter egg hunt with me going out mid-day to hunt around the coop and run for eggs. I know now when a hen is laying by the sounds they make. She will make several long squawks when laying the egg followed by cackles from the rest of the hens like they are giving their support or approval or something. When they are all laying it is going to sound like a chicken chorus out there.
