    I have an eight year old easter egger who is still laying faded blue eggs! How old do Easter Eggers live?

    Chickens can live 10-15 years...some even longer. Average age is 5 but it's not unheard of to have old birds in good health and still pushing an occasional egg.

    Xhickens can live for very long and sometimes short lives.
