    I adopted two hens and was told they were less than a year. I was wondering how many months they are and when they would start laying eggs. I have a Buff Orpington and a Barred Rock. Thankyou!

    [​IMG] They look to be around 4 months old or so. Most likely it will be another month or so before they lay.

    I would agree. I was going to say 15-16 weeks.
