From their backyard antics to their scrumptious eggs,
chickens have become an integral part of our lives.
The average lifespan of a chicken varies significantly,
ranging from a modest 5 to 7 years to an exceptional 16 years as exemplified by Matilda, the record-holding Red Pyle hen.
Commercial laying hens often bred for intense egg production typically live for about 5 to 7 years.
However, as their egg-laying efficiency declines, they are often culled within 1 to 2 years, deemed less profitable for commercial operations.
In contrast, backyard chickens or free-range chickens enjoy a more leisurely existence often basking in a lifespan of 6 to 10 years depending on the breed.
