How old are every ones chickens? I have 4 that are 9 months, and 6 that are 2 months.
I have 2 That are 2 years old, 4 that are one year old, 4 that are 8 months, and 6 that are 5 weeks old
Do your 2 year olds still lay eggs?
Yep! They've slowed just a tiny, tiny bit, but they are still laying regularly. Hens can lay reliably for up to 5 years, after that they generally still lay, but they slow down quite a bit
Wow! I thought they stopped after 3 years.
Nope, it starts to slow at 3 but from what I've read, it's around 5 that it really slows down
Our relatives chickens Stopped laying for a long time at 1 year.
Some chickens take a long time to molt, stress also really messes with their laying
Yeah, I assume that's what it was.
It's really crazy how many people in here don't know that chickens molt, or that chicks lose their feathers before growing adult feathers
