Oh funny story - we are having some work done on the house and the guy working on the AC unit mentioned to me that there were eggs behind the condenser outside. Sure enough - a communal nest with 14 eggs! And they were not all bantum eggs. Apparently even the larger gal's were hoping we wouldn't find their eggs.
Another funny little tale - I have a red sex link hen that lays the largest eggs I've ever seen. They weigh at least 4oz and often up to 4.6-4.8oz. I keep finding one of the tiny little bantums sitting on one of her giant eggs. I can't imagine how she would manage if there were even two - no way she could keep more than one warm under her!
