I know I need to be patient but are buff orps really late on starting to lay eggs? Mine are 25. About two weeks ago i got 4 eggs in one day and I'm pretty sure they were not from my two RIR's because they lay in the back corner of the nest. Two eggs were there in the morning, then that same night, there were two eggs in front of the coop door on the opposite side of the coop. I haven't had anymore than two eggs a day since then though. Odd....really just curious how late they could start. I think they might be getting ready to because their combs and wattles are turning red all of a sudden.
