    An official BYC Poll for our members!

    How old is your current oldest chicken or how old was the oldest chicken you ever had?



    ---- Edited to add:

    For this poll we wanted to get an idea for the "lifespan" of the older chickens in our community. If you have chickens that are under 5 and want to see the results of this poll, you can follow the advice below and simply click "null vote".

    Do we only participate if we have chickens that are five years or older or do we mark the first category if our oldest chicken is five years or less in age?

    I had a barred rock Roo that was my fathers. He was 13. He died the same day as my dad. Very strange.

    I like the poll but there's no under 5 year option. [​IMG] Mine are only just over a year.

    My Great Great Uncle had turkeys so old when he died they went in to take care of his estate and determined all his turkeys were all blind. This is what I was told, I never knew him.

    You can just click "null vote" if your birds don't fit into the categories provided. Then you can see the results without messing up the poll. [​IMG]

    Yup, for this poll we wanted to get an idea for the "lifespan" of the older chickens in our community. Later we may do a poll for all chicken ages for fun!
