I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this; if not, moderators, feel free to move it. Just thought this would be an interesting topic; How old do chickens naturally live? AND How old is your oldest chicken? My oldest is 9 (ten this spring) years old, and still just as perky as the younger hens, with the exception of the occasional runny nose. I'm not sure what kind she, I think some kind of meat bird. Anyway, it might be ineresting to see how many people have older ones, and how iold they can live to be.
