    I am thinking about buying 6 lavender Orpington hens. They said they were hatched late last summer and haven't started laying yet. Does that sound right? When do most lavenders start laying? It seems late to me. We just want them as family chickens, but we want healthy hens that will lay.

    I don't know, sometimes it takes longer for hens to start laying. Two of my Lavenders haven't started laying yet.
