    I've had them for 4 months. But I've been a chicken keeper for a year. I had five red chickens that got eaten by opossums.

    I have been a chicken keeper for around a year as well. I originally had a flock of six RIR's, but I lost four of them to a dog. Then I lost my Russian Orlaf to a hawk.

    The four are my fault. I forgot to put the dog away while the chickens were out and when I came back from the chicken store, there were four dead chickens. My current adult RIRs are the only survivors.
