    I know I few of ya'll have talked about Buff Orpingtons sometimes tend to lay late. I have been waiting over 30 weeks and was just about ready to say chicken is what's for dinner! And then one of the 3 buffs finally laid her first one! And the other 2 seem to be squatting and showing signs of possibly starting. I have never heard of a buff taking this long, so I just wanted to give some hope to others who are feeling like its hopeless, just a little more patience.[​IMG]

    This was a few days before she laid.
