I don't have any chickens, nor do I have the room for them but if we ever moved and had a big enough garden, I'd definately get some. Questions... How often do they lay eggs? Do they lay all year round? Do they stop laying at a certain age? How long do they live? Do you need a cockeral for the hens to lay? What's the best egg-laying breed? Sorry if any of these questions sound dumb to you, but I've no idea about chickens!
