I was wondering at what age does a hen stop laying eggs ? I have a silkie that is well over 7mths. and she only lays 1 egg every other day . Now I have a roo who knows he is a ROO ! But still only 1 egg every other day ? ( nothing fertile, and I have seen with my the shared moment between them) Is it the breed or is she getting up in chicken age ? Thank you . The roo is about the same age if not a mth. younger .
