    Hi PurpleLama / TargeT / Anyone who owns Chickens....

    Regular birds, in the wild, lay somewhere between 2 and 12 eggs, per brood, depending on the
    species. Why are Chickens laying over 250 per year ?

    Do you have to give chickens special 'hormone-enriched' food to get them to lay so many eggs ?

    Do ducks and geese also lay so many eggs ?
    How many eggs will a duck lay per year ?

    Thanks to anyone who answers these questions.

    Chickens have been bred to be the best layers over the thousands of years they have been domesticated, no doubt. The species is thought to originate in Asia somewhere, but now live everywhere humans do. As someone was rightly observing, well fed birds will lay the most, and my four white leghorns are my best layers, one and occasionally two per day. Factory birds may be fed some special diet to lay more, I don't know, but they do feed meat birds hormones and such to get them to grow faster. As for ducks and geese, I don't know.

    the world's oldest living "persons" live in the Ural mountains of Russia and live an average of 120 yrs.; I read about this folk yrs. ago (was also a TV documentary about this folk) and supposedly they eat a lot of raw honey, not eggs-

    my former Russian co-worker, Yuri, confirmed the existence of this folk; he stated it's common knowledge amongst many Russians-

    but according to TV documentary this folk is dieing off because their "youth" have discovered "civilization" and are moving out of their area-

    (I assume) it's because we take the eggs away from them, they never get to "complete the cycle"

    when I let my birds hatch a few, they stop laying eggs because they already have eggs to take care of (I assume).

    I don't know anything about other birds.


    If you don't mind cracking a few more eggs get a few Silkies, they are bred to be pets.. they are super friendly and like affection (but lay small eggs)

    They are also pretty easy to raise. plus... Look at 'em!!!



    Definitely my favorite yard bird...

    My parents used to eat at least 3 eggs a day. 2 boiled eggs for breakfast and 1 or 2 as a snack during the day or evening.

    They always used real butter and nothing low fat, always full and every day 2 glasses of wine. But never more.
    They didnít use sugar in coffee or tea, or drank anything sweet. However, they did eat quite a lot of fruit.

    My dad died 3 years ago when 96 and my mom last year at the age of 94. They have been in good health all their lives and never Iíll. Never took a flu shot. They just took a childrenís aspirine for their blood circulation in the morning for the last 30 years.

    I must have good genes......

    Yes, for those who have never experienced it, chickens are very sweet and affectionate when they get to know you.

    We used to have those same type of chickens, and a couple other types. They would come and sit on our lap and just loved the attention.

    I want to have my own chickens again because as nice as they are to have around, I also enjoy eggs but have a hard time finding good quality eggs.

    Emma Morano died ó of natural causes ó 6 months after the opening post of the thread, aged 117 years and 137 days.

    See these other fascinating threads:
    BUT!

    For extreme longevity (and he didn't eat eggs), here's Li Ching-Yuen, who died in 1933 aged 256: that's two hundred and fifty-six.
