    I have a running list from the last 3 years, but not for the preceding 3 years.
    Not going to format it like yours tho, sorry,
    but here's screen shot from my spread sheet.
    Some odd notes on there that may not make sense to anyone but me.

    Any hatched from your flock? What is average age of retirement? What is cause?

    These are questions of interest to me. I hypothesize you will see two major types of flock history. First will be where the majority of all birds are outsourced from commercial hatchery and leave few if any descendants. The second will involve replacements breed on site and will be the source for some chickens used by other type of flock manager.

    I have not yet had chicks from the flock. Since I'm pretty new. But after much research, I will be giving it a try soon!

    The average life span for a chicken about 8-10 years
    Unless some kind of predator Fox, Coyote, Hawk, etc. :(
