    Hens will lay through out their life. They just start laying with less regularity as they age.

    I have three buff orpington hens that are 2 years old and still get an egg from them every day. The 3 and 1 RIR hen are the only hens I have laying in this cold weather [​IMG]

    They are some of the most mild tempered hens i have ever had. Out of the three only one went broody and she stayed in an empty nest. I got mine from a member here, but I don't think he's still a member [​IMG]
