    Well, I'm planning on getting some 1 year old hens.
    A leghorn x and a Black Rock

    Do they still lay well?

    Thank you in advance

    They should,
    not as good as young ones but they will lay big nice shaped eggs

    Our current hens are just little bantams and haven't actually laid yet so any eggs would be a blessing
