    Ok, so I got my first egg on the 9th, yipee.
    I got the secong egg yesterday. Both from the same girl, Bunty.
    How long before the other two, Babs and Eggwina start laying?
    All three are 29 week old buff orpingtons.

    If they're all the same age, you should see eggs soon from the others.

    Congrats! It's so much fun getting your first egg.

    Two of my Buff Orpingtons are now laying for several weeks The third one has not yet started. All the same age. But she has always been the shy one, last in line to get her feed, always picked on by the rest of the flock. She looks close but no eggs yet. I think because she seems to be at the bottom of the pecking order is the reason why she has not started yet. I hope this might help you.
