    Does anyone know how long chickens can live. What about how long roosters are fertile??

    Quote:I think chickens have a life span of up to 10 years. Don't know about the roosters' fertility, though.

    Chickens are 7-15 years but some have lived longer. Not sure how long a rooster is fertile tho, try googling it [​IMG]

    Hey Pinky! I see you got turkeys. Do they do ok with the chickens, or are they seperated. I've heard so many times youre not suppossed to mix them. I want to get a pair of turkeys for the fun of it. Just wondering..
