I've got a 3 year old rooster. Most of the time, when they get so old either a predator gets them or they eat something free ranging that they shouldn't or did I mention a predator gets them?

I have a couple of Australorps that are at least 8 yrs old...maybe 9. They still lay eggs and I have some pullets running around out there from them.

does it take an older bird to molt longer? i have about 5 that are 3 this year ,that's not OLD , but at 12, they must need a little TLC?

My grandfather had the same chickens for 6-7 years before he 'restocked'. 17 years is CRAZY!! I had a dog that lived to 19 years and passed away on my son's 1st birthday.
