I was wondering if anyway can share their knowledge of polish top hat chickens life span?

My two polish hens are over 6 years old (hatchery chicks) And for the past two days I am seeing my polish “top hen” acting strange. She has not been roosting and she has been sleeping in the nest box at night. So I am now wondering if it might be getting close to her time ? She has never had that kind of behavior. she is a very special girl in the flock and has always been the leader.

Mine sometimes would do that when they were molting. Otherwise polish have a lifespan similar to other breeds, up to 15, but most chickens live from 4-8 years in my experiences with a few living longer.
