    Are these the type of chickens that only lay for one year then stop laying?

    I found a post on Craigslist for 3 GB laying hens and they're a week short of being a year old so I wanted to find this out before buying them.

    Thank you!

    Most hens lay for years but may slack off after the first year. I have a couple of mutt hens that are 2-3 years old and I get nearly an egg a day from each.

    My 2 year old hens are steady every-other-day layers.
