    I ask because we were told she was about 8 months old. However we have had her for 2 weeks and she hasn't layed an egg yet.

    What kind is she? Just looking at her, I would guess 4-5 months old.

    She looks very similar to my 19 week old Buff Orpington. Mine are not laying yet either. I would say about 17-19 weeks. How red is her comb?

    She is a buff orpington and her comb is rose colored. I think she is beautiful! But I want eggs. If she is really that young, that explains alot.

    When I get home I will take a picture of mine that will be 20 weeks on 9/9. That way you can compare. I am anxiously wanting eggs too!

    I go to the uploads at the top of the page...wait. I assume you have it downloaded already (?). I highlight the image url and then copy it and paste it into the body of the message.
