Contrary to popular belief, chickens can lay eggs year round. Some people say the heat of the summer, the short days of winter, or old age will stop chickens from producing eggs.
Those things do have an effect, but even so, chickens will keep producing eggs all year and for years to come as long as you do two things: Keep them healthy and keep them happy. And one way to do that is to feed them the right foods.
