No, not those fluffy sugar-coated marshmallow kind, But the fluffy-feathered kind.
Common knowledge says that young Pullets ( that is female chickens less than a year old) begin laying anytime between 18 to 20 weeks of age and then lay continually until they molt, at about a year later. My older ladies didn't molt until the beginning of their third year and their egg production didn't fully stop while they molted, only slowed down. That ability probably has a lot to do with their breeds: Buff Orpingtons, Black Australorps, Barred-Rock-Cross ; are all heavy and dual purpose breeds.
