So many eggs!

Can a hen lay more than one egg a day?

It is commonly known that a bird cannot lay more than 1 egg in 24 hours. But can that rule be bent?

The reason i ask, is because i have found lots of eggs lately. More than it would seem possible for a tiny little bird to lay.
 I collected this many eggs in 2 days...

Some of them are quite obviously larger than the others, and have double yolks.
This one was somewhat oddly shaped.

 These little white birds always surprise me with what they lay!

So it's a curious question. Are they in fact laying more than one egg, per bird, per day. Or is it just my sloppy counting.

Either way, i'm not complaining! :)
