How Long Do Chickens Live?

The life expectancy of most standard chicken breeds, shielded from chicken predators and deep fryers, can range from 8 to 15 years, with Bantam chicken breeds living 4 to 8 years.

There are many reports of pet chickens living as long as 20 years! With the increasing popularity of raising chickens as pets, I imagine someone will develop a new line of chicken coops such as nursing coops or assisted living coops for the growing population of elderly chickens. All joking aside, chickens are very hardy animals. With proper housing, care and diet, they rarely need a trip to a veterinarian, no matter how long they live.

A week-by-week guide to a happy, healthy flock!
