    Hello everyone... I might be getting a Frizzle bantam(atleast I think thats what it is, its a frizzle and it has feathers on its feet.) and its probably about 2 1/2weeks old or so, and I was just wondering how long they usually live. Also how long do Jersey Black Giants and RIRs live? Just Curious [​IMG]

    Till you put it in the oven. Just joking, I have a frizzle roo that is 4 years old and going strong. Other chickens can live maybe 9 years. After 4 or 5 they done to much beside eat, sleep and poop.

    Uhh, just as long as all other chickens. Which is what, 10 years? I'm not sure.

    I have a frizzle that must have had a frizzle as both parents. He looks pitiful. Anyone know how long they live!?

    They live as long as any other chicken. Their lifespan is dependent on the level if care you give them and the potential to be offed by a predator (which is quite high for frizzles, by the way- since they can't fly).
