I was just curious if anyone knows how old they can get. My pet rooster Chester lives inside with us. He showed up malnourished and injured on my front porch almost a year ago now and I nursed him back to health and he lives in a 50 gallon tote in my den and wears a diaper to wander the house. He is blind in one eye and is already pretty old judging by his feet and really long talons. Sometimes his crow is a little...off...more like a croak. He crows at all hours of the day and night though, sometimes if he hears me laughing or talking a lot. He doesn't do well in temperatures below 68 degrees so he gets his heat lamp turned on every night over his roost in the tote and he seems pretty happy with that, in fact some days when I turn it off he goes on a crowing binge. Other than that he is pretty spunky, he regularly tries to flog my fiancee (and we have no idea why he hates him so much), he flies out of his tote on occasion, and he enjoys taunting the dogs and my rabbit. I'm hoping to keep him around for awhile!
