I was reading a book last night about having a small farm, it had a part in it about chickens. It said the best laying years for a chickens are in the first two years of a chickens life. The book suggested to process your chicken at that point and start with new chickens. I mean I know a day is gonna come when my chickens don't lay that well and all that. Just curious what do you do with your chickens???? Do you keep your chickens until they are old and grey, do you process your after a couple years (if you process when) or do you sell or give them away at some point? After reading that I was just wondering what most people do.
