  1. 7-15 years is the natural lifespan of a chicken (but 6 weeks for a broiler and12-23 months for a laying hen).

    However, if all your chickens are dying at once, it may be as a result of a disease. Check out this website for information on symptoms.

  3. the average age of hens is around ten years, practically you are safe to give or take a couple of years .Chickens begining to die at around four sounds rather like a problem ,best to consult a vet who can guide you as to the most likely cause of these early deaths.Not normal so act fast you don’t want to end up losing all your birds.
