    Would it be foolish to buy an austra white that is already a year old? How many years do they lay?

    Depends on how much you lay for it. They're good for about two to three years. If it isn't too terribly much then I would think it might be worth it.

    It depends on how much you pay for the year old Austra White. As draye said, they will give 2 to 3 years of decent laying.
