    I have a question, how many eggs does a Buff orp lay a week/year? [​IMG]

    Hi

    As with all animals, each is an individual and any replies to your question will only give you an idea of what you might expect. Buff Orps can go broody, so a yearly figure can vary enormously if you get a broody one, because she will be out of production for months raising chicks and then you can expect to lose a couple of months production after their first year for moult, so annual figures just don't make any sense in my opinion. I would say 5-6 eggs a week is not an unreasonable expectation when they are in lay.

    Do you have some buffs or are you thinking of getting some?

    I agree "As with all animals, each is an individual and any replies to your question will only give you an idea of what you might expect."

    I would love to get buffs but I can't really, they are such content looking birds, aren't they? 5 to 6 is reasonably good isn't it! They are good mammas!!
    Thanks for posting! xx
