What is the oldest hen you have laying and what breed is she?
My oldest one I think was about 4-5 years or so and was a sexlink of some type. My curent oldest layer is also a sexlink at 4 years.
4years is good. People keep saying that the newer sex links give up sooner. Is this true or not?
so far im winning i got a RIR and Austrolorp that lays about, depending on weather and stuff, lay about maybe 3 or 4 eggs a week and are about 8 YEARS OLD maybe 9
My MIL farm has 3 EE hens that are 16 years old. They occasionally still lay an egg. It goes in spurts.
My cousin still has EE hens that are 11 years old. Still laying don't know the numbers. We had spilt the batch when they were chicks. I got rid of ours to make sure I would still be getting eggs. I guess I might of been able to save some money if I would of just kept them! (Probably not since we are up to 5 kids now!)
Quote:cool, i hope my 2 live that long even if they arent laying
Wow 16 years!!!! I wonder if you could hatch those eggs?
