OK I would like your guys opinion of which breeds are the most productive egg layers over their natural lives. I have no desire to eat any of my layers (unless times get tough lol). So I would like to get a breed that will lay decently for many years. Hatcheries seem to tell you that after 3 years they are only good for stew. Surely there are breeds that still lay after 3 years considering they can live for many more.
