Hi everyone...I love chickens! I have 4 Bantam roosters, 5 Bantam hens, 4 Game hens and 1 ancient BIG RED HEN (don't remember the name of the breed) name Zoey. She is at least ten years old. How long do chickens live, anyway? Chickens have shared my life since I was about two years old.....I am 54 now. I am delighted to have found a place to talk to folks about chickens! HOW NICE!
