Our chickens are getting on a bit

Recommended Posts

Our two Light Sussex are both rising four according to what we were told when we bought them (nearly two years ago now). One, Clover, is in very good health, bright red comb, always first out in the morning and definitely laying. The other, Lupin, is bigger, slower, comb a tad paler and probably not laying or if she is, not as much as Clover. We get 3-5 eggs a week.


I suspect Lupin might be older than Clover and wonder if there's any way of telling a chicken's age?


I suppose there's not much good looking in their beaks :lol:
