How Old Is Your Oldest Chicken?

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by The Funky Chicken Dunce, Jul 28, 2011.

  1. Curious as I've only had chickens die of unnatural causes so far...

    What age was or is your oldest chicken ever?
    What breed was it?
    And anything else you want to tell about it, thanks! [​IMG]

    16 weeks! I know that isn't very old but I thought I'd jump start the thread.
