People ask "How old do roosters get?"
The answer depends entirely on circumstance. I have older roosters still on active duty into their 8th year, while others pass over early for various reasons. The average lifespan for a chicken with good luck is 5-8 years.
There are chickens older than 12 years old, so if you take on a chicken as a pet, make sure that you can commit for the same timespan as keeping a dog or cat. Pet chickens will give you as much, if not more, pleasure than other pets with their quirky personalities.
