    It's really not possible to age an adult bird. If you got her 4 yrs ago and she's still alive and laying, she was probably not more than a couple years old when you got her. Average lifespan for a chicken is 5-7 years.

    I would say when you got her she was no more then 1-1/2 to 2, she looks pretty old now so her being 5 or 6 now would make since
