Old chicks (and Roos)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was so impressed with one member's 9 year old brahma that I have to ask, does anyone else have any old(er) birds, or had birds that lived well into their golden years? Please share their stories and pics! It'll be a great way to honor their memory of they're no longer with us, or celebrate the ones you do still have smile.png

Here are three of my original girls (Mary Ann, Dixie, and June Bug) that I got in 2009.  They're all much slower than they use to be, and Dixie has been hobbling a bit for the past six months or so, but they all still lay a few eggs per week when the weather is nice (although they completely stopped through late fall/winter).  I love my oldies :love

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.
