Fact of the Day: Old Chicken

If not used for meat, a chicken can live anywhere from five to ten years on average. The oldest chicken to ever live made it to sixteen years old.

Too bad most of them are eaten before they can even get to one year

Well that's a decent age for a chook.

I had no idea they could live to that age, but I suppose not many do unfortunately.

16 years sure isn't too shabby

That's a pretty long time, and I can imagine people can get really attached. Hugs...RO

Chickens are good to have around. They keep things cleaned up.

Christine said...

Martha said...

My neighbors have some that like to run back and forth across the street. It's weird because we live in a residential neighborhood, nowhere near farmland. I guess I'll have to make sure I'm not running them over for the next 5 to 10 years.

I had no idea. My sister would one day like to have chickens, let's see if she'll realize that dream. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and leaving me a kind comment. You are right, bachelor/bachelorette parties are the same as in the States here, but nowadays alternative parties are becoming more common. People prefer to actually enjoy themself in a way that they will remember for the rest of their life.
