My oldest is only about 2 years old and of course still laying very well. They will stay with me forever, no matter what, but out of curiosity: how old is your oldest chicken and do you still get any eggs?

Sorry not at the moment they share with some younger hens but have different coloured eggs to them. To be honest ive never bothered to count just noticed the colour.
WIll keep an eye on them and see if you like.
They are just pets (I dont eat eggs lol)

I just started keeping chickens and I was surprised to hear that they had birds for 8+ years!!!! I never knew chickens lived that long, so now I'm curious how the egg production cycle goes with age....just curious I guess to hear others experiences....

oh yeah, and

My chickens have just started laying, so I'm glad to know they could go longer than 1-2 years.
This a good post.
