Goat Eggs?

Rocky (black and white) and Norbert (white with brown) were delivered to us on Thursday.  They were 4H goats for some friends of ours from church and they are done with that.  We decided to get them to protect our baby fainting goat, Gus.
Goats are social animals, and having just Gus might have been tough on him.  These two crazy guys will give him someone to play with and provide a little guidance as the more mature members of our barnyard.

On Saturday, when this picture was taken, we found a hen laying an egg in the goat stall.  When she got up, we found ELEVEN eggs.  Now the chickens would have had to fly into that closed stall between Monday and Thursday.  On Friday it was left open for Rocky & Norbert to go in and out and the chickens could have accessed it much easier.  I still don't know how they managed to get that many eggs but apparently they like their new barnyard mates.
