    Hens of special laying breeds may produce as many as 300 eggs a year. After 12 months, the hen’s egg laying ability starts to decline and then the hens are slaughtered and used in baby foods, pet foods, pies and other processed foods. Under natural conditions, most birds lay only until a clutch is complete. After that the hen will stop laying and focus on the incubation of the eggs. A full clutch is usually about 12 eggs.
