At the end of a bird’s egg production stage, they are known as spent layers or old layers as they are called in Nigeria. This usually occurs after about 12-15 months of consistent egg production. When the the egg production rate has dropped below 50% and the income they generate is not enough to pay for their feeds and other associated cost, they are sold as a spent layer. In CCF, we offer such spent layers of top quality body weight for sale at affordable prices.
