Yep, 50 eggs is a few for sure.

I still can't figure out what I'm looking at. It's got to be two birds but where is the rest of the gray one?

A bit too far away. But it wasn't the buff in the nest, it was the white head with the grey body.

What?? How many chickens do you have the fact that you have 50 eggs on the counter? I have 9 chickens and only get around 3-4 eggs a day, and in my fridge I only have 14 eggs or so from them.

LOL Well, that's not good. You might have to block it off until they realize you don't want them laying under there.

That coloration is still odd. I might expect on a male but not a female. To have the white head and creamy body is unusual.

Changing the subject bit but I have a Golden Comet who has laid every single day since she was 15 weeks old. She is now 16 months old. Yesterday is the first day she has not laid an egg and she has not laid today, She seems perfectly fine running around and jumping up to sit in my lap as usual. Is this something I should be very concerned about?
