I know this seems like a stupid question, but I wasn’t able to find anything pertinent with a search.
My grandmother has a friend who only has one hen, who swears that it lays, on average, four eggs per day. Balderdash! I say. I’ve had chickens myself, and only got one egg per hen each day, if that. Yet, this woman vows that it is true. The woman is new to the “country” life and has this lone hen as a pet, and sees nothing strange about her claim.
I’ve heard that large egg producing corporate farms have discovered ways to “trick” hens into producing more eggs, but I’ve never heard of * four. * My grandmother insisted I check this out for her.
