We have fifteen 23-week-old Buff Orps. We got our first egg two weeks ago. We have three confirmed layers, and are getting about three eggs per day. They molted the couple weeks before they started laying, so if yours are molting now, or recently did, then it should be soon.
Good luck! I remember being ready to burst waiting for the first egg. I even joked about trying to wring an egg out of one of them.
i have 20 brown eggers and they are 5 months old and just started laying about two weeks ago , i got 11 eggs today , the most i have ever gotten !!!!
so that means i have 9 hens that still aren't laying.
do not have any orphingtons, but the ones that i have that i know are laying ARE white rock, partridge rock, rir, barred rock, naked neck, and EE( they aren't green though they are light olive color, i don't really care about that.)
good luck and welcome to BYC
