In August I adopted 2 chickens from the city. 1 easter egger and 1 millie Fleur. The woman said they have not laid an egg in 6 months and were only 2 years old. Since I've had them (two months) they have been free range and fed some layer crumbles. They are happy and healthy. I don't need them to lay eggs they have a home for life I was just wondering what would make them stop, would they start again or are they older than she told me?
