    Hi everyone, I was just wondering how long a life span Serama chickens have and are there any bantum breeds that have a long life span? Thank you.

    The little type A's don't live very long, but the bigger ones can live for 8 or 9 years. OEGB's can live 15+ years.

    i thought they would be like dogs... the bigger the dog, the shorter it's life span... the smaller, the longer it will live... something about heart not working that hard on a small animal...

    Thank you both for your reply. I just didn't want to get some Seramas and get attatched to them, if they have a short life span. Eight years is good, thought it might be 2 or 3 years. Again thank you for your quick response.
