    There really isn't a breed that lives the longest. Most bantams COULD have a lifespan of about 10 years. As long as you take care of them ( and they don't get killed by a predator ) they will live pretty long. I have a Banty hen who is about 6 years old and is still really healthy and lays eggs ( she is a half Black Japanese and half ? )
