Oldest Chook

Out of interest, how old is or was the oldest chicken you had?

I have a very healthy, still laying Welsummer who is now 5 1/5 years old.

My oldest ones are the Serama boys Foggy and Alphie, who have both just turned 7. 

I've had a couple of hens make it to 10 before but the oldest ones I have at the moment are Alphie's girls who are bantam orps and are 6.  They laid a few eggs this spring as well  :)

Weeble is 6 1/2 and is a Skyline.  She lays blue eggs - but only occasionally these days.

I still have one of my original 3 that I started with 10 years ago. 1 died aged 7, 1 died last year aged 9 and "Gem" is still going strong, she doesn't even look old. I wish I knew her secret, I could do with some of whatever it is.
