    What age should lavender Orpingtons start laying eggs at? Mine are 23 weeks, and I want to know if they should be laying now or how long it will be until they start laying.

    Usually in between 18 to 20 weeks, but if they are not getting enough calcium it can be delayed

    Thanks My 3 Babies! My hens are now 24 weeks and still not laying, and they are ion layer feed, so I don't know what is going on. They probably just aren't ready yet.
