    if they are a couple months old, they are not laying, and at a couple months old, if they are healthy $2 a bird is a very good price.

    They won't be as prolific as younger hens, but they should still turn out big brown eggs for you on a fairly regular basis. You may get 3 to 5 eggs a week from each.

    they are past their prime, but you'll get your $2 worth out of them no doubt.

    If they are Australorps, it's an even better deal. Australorps are regular layers long past their prime. And as a bonus some may lay through the winter and some may go broody, allowing you to hatch or raise chicks without an incubator or brooder.
