Young hens are just starting to lay. Many folks say that these are the tastiest eggs, and they may well be, as this is the prime of the hen's life: a time when she is healthiest, in her "puberty". The yolk may be a little richer, but I do not know scientific facts on this. Yes, it takes 6 months for a chicken to start laying, and another two months, on the average, to make full-sized eggs. So, now we may begin to see why the cost of eggs continues to rise: We feed the hen for eight months in faith that, in her life-time, she will repay us with her eggs. Each chicken may produce one-half dozen eggs/week, in good conditions and in good health.
