I have 4 chickens and am wondering how long they will lay. And if you love them, what do you do after they quit? I can't get more because our ordinance in the city only allows 4. How long do chickens live?
Today the lady at my post office said she has only one chicken left, (hers have died of old age) and it is a ameraucana hen. At 10 years old she lays still, but only a dozen eggs in the last few months.
