    Was wondering, someone has these for sale on Craigs List & is asking $10 for each 18 month old hens. Is that a good age & price? How long do these girls lay for? Or should I be looking for younger ones?
    Thanks![​IMG]

    Decent price for those, and they are some of the best layers around. If you want to have eggs, those are the right birds!

    Typically good birds will lay well for 4 or 5 years.
