    I haven't had chickens that long, but there is a lady in our county here in KY that has a pet rooster that is 13 yrs old. He has survived a stroke and everything and is still plugging along. They put him in the paper on his birthday sometimes (slow news days). That's the oldest I've ever heard of so far.
