    I bought these buff orp pullets at a chicken show in April. We aren't positive of their age... I'm guessing around 3 months? Any guesses on age/when they will start laying?

    They look to be about 16 weeks. They will start between 22-26 weeks. At least mine did.

    Hi, this is a photo of one of my five pullets when I bought them at 17 weeks old - that was 3 weeks ago. We had our first two eggs yesterday - at 20 weeks old. No eggs today
