    Hey all, I have 10 Buff Orpingtons that are now 27.5 weeks old and I think only 4 are laying (getting 4 eggs a day). What's up with that? Is that normal? I just feel like we've had them forever and I thought I had read (was told?) that they would start laying at about 20 weeks.

    What gives?

    They mature at different rates. 27 weeks without laying is not that unusual.
