Anybody knows how long can chickens and roosters live? anyone on here has chickens that are over 5 years old?
I definitely agree! The older the betterI've had hatchery birds in the 7 year range. They were quite healthy and did lay eggs, not a ton but did still lay. I gave them away because my entire flock was aging and I was spending too much on feed for the return I had.
I had some hatchery roosters also make it to 7 years or so. I have to say, older roosters are such gentlemen!
