This year, Peanut, the 21-year-old chicken, was officially recognized as the oldest living chicken in the world by the Guinness World Records. Also, she becomes the main focus of the picture book for kids called “My Girl Peanut and Me – On Life and Love from the World’s Oldest Chicken,” created and released by the person who owns her, Darwin.
A 37-acre farm in Chelsea, Michigan called “Darwin’s Eden” is owned and operated by Darwin, a former librarian, and her partner, Bill. They keep various animals on their farm, like dogs, birds, chickens, ducks, guinea hens, and peafowl.

Darwin observed that Peanut’s egg tooth, which chicks require to get out of their eggs, was absent when she initially hatched in May 2002. Peanut just appeared in good health. Darwin rescued Peanut by hand when her mother left her. Peanut was first kept in a box in the living room when she was very young.
Once Peanut reached the elderly, she moved in with the farm’s other chickens and lived 13 years in a coop. She also produced several of her own chicks at that time, most of which were produced by Lance, her favorite crow. While Peanut has come to the age where she has no ability to lay any more chicks, she recently discovered company in Benny, the one-eyed chicken who takes good care of her.
