How old will hens stop laying eggs? my little frizzle is only 2 and a half and she stopped laying eggs last year, and hasn't laid any in over a year. The crested hen i got that was born same day as her is still laying eggs. Also anyone know anything about him? He was given to me after being dumped on my friend's farm, and now that he's giving me fertile eggs, i should probably know what he actually is so i know what the chicks are... I'm sure someone here can tell me. I'm not that well versed on chicken breeds, I only know the ones I've bought myself. Is there a way to tell how old he is or anything? And how old will roosters be before they stop producing? Thanks.
