    How much longer until this hen starts to lay? She (and her sister) are almost 20 weeks old. They are hatchery Buff Orpingtons.

    Whenever they want to...next week...next 3 months...LOL sorry! I know how hard it is to wait, believe me! Try not to worry and think about it so much. Before you know it there will be a little egg in the nest box!
