Old Hen, New Eggs

Starting Up Again in March
People often ask, "At what age do hens stop laying?"  As of this week, a nine-year-old free range Barred Rock, after taking the winter off, is back in production mode. This puts this chicken on the same calendar as many of the lobstermen.


  1. Which came first?

  2. Have 2 pet hens and they are 5 years old. Now that it is getting sunnier and warmer again, they have gone back into production! Not sure which I am more excited about -- spring coming or fresh organic eggs!
