Ray's Chicken-and-Egg Puzzler

The Puzzler

RAY: This is from my chicken-egg series.

TOM: Wait a minute. Can you name any other puzzler that was from the chicken-egg series?

RAY: Uh... no. This is the first. There may have been others. I don't remember. Here it is. It's very simple:

A chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half. How long will it take for two chickens to lay 32 eggs?

TOM: I want to see that half egg!

RAY: I want to see that half chicken!

Here's the question: How long will it take two chickens to lay thirty-two eggs?
