Just thought it would be interesting to know how old the oldest chickens are out there! We have a 6 year old Americana hen who is the only one left from our original flock-survived dog attacks, fox attacks and she still lays eggs for us. She is the only chicken who will fly out of the fenced in pen but always comes home at bed time. Tonight, she gave me a scare and didn't come home. Found her a asleep in the neighbors' yard. Thinking she's getting old which was why i started wondering how old some of your hens and roosters are out there?
