She was only a couple months old when I got her. She didn't even have a tail yet! And she had just turned six when she passed away. I'm honestly not sure if that is old or not, because I haven't gotten a straight answer on what her lifespan would be like. Regarding getting more birds, usually the county fair in my area has a bunch of chickens for sale and people usually sell pairs from the same flock. They sometimes have chicks and that's what I'm hoping for. Stores like Tractor Supply and other feed stores sell chicks, but there's always a minimum of six and I can only have up to five, and I only want up to two in the house at a time, so that isn't an option unfortunately. Last year there were no poultry events because of the big outbreak of bird flu, but hopefully things will be back to normal this year.
