    If they are truly only 18 months old you've got another good 6 months of decent egg production. 16 for $50 is a great price.

    Thats a great price if its for all 16 birds--I would make sure ,somehow, that they truly are only 18 months old-My 18 monthers lay like crazy-Im assuming this will be their last year laying like that:-(
