What is the average lifespan of a chicken?

One of our hens died this week-- I think she was one of our original ones, which would make her maybe about 8 years old. She was a good layer-- but not in the last few months, a Rhode Island Red and one of our largest, heaviest hens .Is this old for a chicken?

    It really depends on how hungry you are. Here in the Philippines they last for around 4 months!
