does anyone have knowledge on americanas and thier laying longevity?
Second: Are you talking about pure breds or hatchery "Ameracaunas" that are actually Easter Eggers (EEs), which are technically mutts?
Third: If they really are EEs then it depends on the bird, as they are mutts. I love EEs though.
They all came from mcmurray hatchery but they are about 18 months old.
got them from a friend who can not keep them any more.
They are EEs then. Ours lay well and have great temperaments, but it does depend on the bird of course! Post pics, I want to see.
i will tommorow.is in true that these birds can lay for 9 years.
Um... NO. Most don't even live that long. Usually they slow down in laying after 2-3 years, and after that only an egg once in a while. Of course some are the exception and go on laying but for most they stop after a bit.
Most hens lay best in their first year. After that, it declines.
