    I currently have RIR but am looking to switch to Red Stars. Does anyone know their longevity or length of efficient production?

    Good question. I picked a few this year and I'd like to know too. Thanks for asking and I hope someone comes along with the answer.

    Most hens live to about 6 years with good care but after their second molt egg productivity will decline.
