How long have your chickens lived? I'm always curious how long our 3 Buff Orpingtons (2 pullets + 1 cockerel), 2 Barred Rock pullets, and 2 Easter Egger pullets will live. They'll be 1 at the end of May. They've got a nice big run, a little bit of scratch or oats everyday, they eat layer feed, and they're well-socialized and safe from predators. One of the buffs is always mentally stimulated as she is my trick chicken and she knows 15 tricks! She also goes for walks with me on my shoulder and such, rides in my bike basket, and scratches around while I pet the horses down the road. People like interacting with her a lot...she's not scared of much! So she isn't as much in a routine but I wonder if adventures like that might affect her lifespan at all.
