Chickens and Roosters

Is the ammount of eggs laid a year effected buy the chickens age?

Yes. Very much so. The prime laying ages for chickens vary slightly, however the first egg is laid at about 5 months old and peak at about 18 months of age. From that time the output can drop quickly to a complete halt by the age of three. Some hens will offer an egg after this age but they are few, far between and often malformed.
