I want to keep a small flock for fresh eggs for my family, someone told me that I should kill my chickens before they get a year old ... is this true??
This ^^Not true..Chickens do get slower at laying eggs as they get older but I am talking like 2 yrs old I don't know why you would want to kill them before they are a year old when they don't start laying until 5-6 mo old and really get going around age 1. Whoever told you that has never had chickens for eggs.
