    Quote:She could be. Do you have a picture? I have a couple that look like they are ready for stew when they molt. They drop weight, drop feathers and stop laying. It's pretty pathetic looking.

    Grandma has now led the other girls to stray!!! This is a case of the grass is greener!!! Cause they have eaten all of mine, so they are wandering into the neighbors yard. DH wants to now know if we need a fence in addition to the 3 foot wall!!!

    I love hearing stories about older chickens living to still be a functioning member of the flock. I have a hen that is ½ silkie and ½ cochin that is 8 yrs old this year and she still lays and is probably the best broody in the history of broodies. She will take any egg I give her and will raise that baby (you should have seen her bitty self trying to hover 2 month old peachicks a few years ago!).

    Congrats on Grandma - somebody did something right by her along the way for a production bird to still be alive and producing!
