Hi BYCers! I was wondering when chickens usually stop laying eggs. I have four chickens (blue cochin, buff orpington, silver wyendotte, PPR) and now only my silver wyendotte is laying. they are two years old this spring, and since they (besides the silver wyendotte) have stopped laying, I was wondering if this is natural or just because of the extreme cold. NOTE: I live in MN, and in case you don't know, we are having our 3rd coldest winter ON RECORD. For a few nights we had to move them to a dog carrier in my garage. please give me your feedback! I need to know so that I can decide whether or not to replace my chickens with four new chicks. do they normally stop laying eggs after 2 years or not? if not, is it the cold? Thank you all so much!!!
