The Continuing Adventures of Darwin
a most amazingly resilient chicken

A tribute to honor her 16th birthday

So Darwin, the chicken who practices wu wei, turned 16 years of age this month (May 2010) — an unheard of age for a chicken. Most have their heads chopped off for consumption or die of shock or cold or some such thing long before this point. Rarely do they die of old age. No one I’ve queried has any idea of the life expectancy of a chicken. Indeed we’ve lost 2 of our small brood in the last two months to unknown causes — just laid down and died over a few days — both about 5 years of age. But Darwin continues on despite the traumas of youth and old age — definitely a tough old bird.
