    I was so impressed with one member's 9 year old brahma that I have to ask, does anyone else have any old(er) birds, or had birds that lived well into their golden years? Please share their stories and pics! It'll be a great way to honor their memory of they're no longer with us, or celebrate the ones you do still have :)

    Here are three of my original girls (Mary Ann, Dixie, and June Bug) that I got in 2009. They're all much slower than they use to be, and Dixie has been hobbling a bit for the past six months or so, but they all still lay a few eggs per week when the weather is nice (although they completely stopped through late fall/winter). I love my oldies [​IMG]
