    After reading some of the responses to another thread, I have become curious...do different breeds have chickens have longer laying lives then other breeds?

    My Buffs were laying past their third year. They each laid one egg a day with no drop off except winter.

    I have no idea if they went beyond three years because I had to give them away.[​IMG]

    Some people seem to be getting only two years from their laying hens. I was wondering if it was a breed thing or not.

    I meant to put this under the egg laying and behavior section. Darn. Hopefully the moderators will move this for me.
