Can eagles lay more than one egg at a time?
Eagles lay their eggs one at a time and from one to three days apart. Egg producing consumes a great deal of energy. Only one egg can be produced at a time and takes 24 hours or more to form once the male sperm penetrates the ova (female egg).

Can one mating result in more than one egg?
One mating can result in more than one egg. The sperm reaches the top of the female’s oviduct within minutes, but disappear within 24 hours. They then reappear in the same location in small numbers at the time of each subsequent laying or ovulation.
