Meet Peanut, the oldest living chicken at 21 years old

Peanut, A bantam hen, has officially been named the world’s oldest living chicken in the world by Guinness World Records. She is 21-years-old.

Marsi Parker Darwin, a retired librarian found an abandoned chicken egg one day that looked to have needed help. She was afraid it was not alive.

“I heard a second chirp, and I realized that the chick was alive and didn’t seem to have an egg tooth to get out of its shell.”

She helped the chick break free from the egg and it quickly captured Darwin’s heart.

In May of this year, Peanut celebrated her 21st birthday. Chickens usually live to be five to eight years old.
