CHICKENS-MAUDE-BLUEBERRIES

CHICKENS
Now is the time of year you see advertisements for two-year old chickens for sale. They go cheaply. People want new birds for more eggs. I keep all my hens.They range in age from 1 to 14.All still laying!!!! I get at least 5 eggs a day and will get more in the summer.My philosophy is to keep all hens and get two new ones each August. It has worked. My 14-year-old hen Francis lays an egg every other day all summer long. Another hen, Gladys who is up there in age has been laying a couple of eggs a week all during the winter, she was given to me and her owners said she hardly lays. The following is a picture of her beautiful blue egg.
