    We have 16 ladies. 3 of them(Buff Orphingtons)are 9 years old. They still give us an egg or 2 per month. They are our Granny Hens and we love them. We were gifted with 13 Black Stars a while back. They are 18 months old and good layers. They all get along. We kept them separate for 2 weeks,allowing the 3 "grannies" to check out the newbies through the chicken wire. They are all doing fine. When we lose one of our ladies we have a small pet cemetery where they are laid to rest,we also have our dear dog Fred buried there and his long time cat companion Barney.
