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!
