I'm a Sr. Grandma and retired accountant. I have 2 hens,Robin a big beautiful bared rock and Rosie a Rhode IslandRed. They have the run of our side and back yard and have a 2 story condo to call home. They are turning 8 this spring and still laid some eggs this past year. Can anyone tell me how long they should live? I am also a quilter. Hope to hear from others with same interests.
