How many eggs do your Buff Orpingtons Lay a Week?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am thinking about getting Buff Orpingtons to add to my little flock.  Are they good layers?  We have 2 Barred Rocks and 1 NH Red.  They lay around 5 eggs a week each.  I am looking for something comparable.  Our feed store has Buff Orpingtons, and my kids are dying to get at least one. 


Thanks!

Mine lays an egg almost every day

Depends on their age.   My four BO's are 2 1/2 years old and between the four of them I get one egg every other day.

I have 22 Buffs that are 29 weeks...  and we have 3 RIRs, 2 Bantams and 2 EEs... everyone is not laying but we get anywhere from 18 - 24 eggs a day. I do know that our bantams give us about 3 - 4 eggs a week and 1 of our EE just started laying yesterday, the other is not laying yet... so the rest of the eggs are the buffs and RIR's

My four girls (30ish weeks) are fairly consistent now.  Either 3 or 4 eggs a day.

My three Buffs lay 1 a day. Born 4/1/09. Am kind of dissappointed with the egg size though. Mine are on the smallish medium side, creamy tan to pinkish in color. My Marans on the other hand are laying jumbos almost daily. Only problem there is they started out dark and speckly and now are kind of med terra cotta...oh well.
