How long do chickens live anyway?
March 2, 2013... a box of day old chicks arrived from Iowa.
My girls are 5 years old now! I thought they were senior citizens, this morning Google tells me chickens can easily live to 10 years old.
This is going to be a longer committed relationship than I had anticipated. The Araucana lays large green eggs. The Faverolle, Marguerite, claims to be retired.
My favorite, the Sussex, Poppy, still slings an egg every once in a while.
Back scratches for everyone. Happy Birthday, Girls!
