    They are some good looking birds [​IMG] My orpingtons started laying at 23 weeks old. Each day that passed seemed like an eternity! Try to be patient you may have a little bit time more to wait. Be sure to post a photo of the first egg!

    who told you the breeds of your birds ? the 2 birds on the left (grey) look like they may be andalusians, I m probably wrong ,anyway when the combs and wattles grow more and turn really red thats when they will be close to ready
