    My 4 Buff Orps are 1 1/2 yrs old. They are all almost done with a heavy molt. They were pretty naked! Most of them have all their feathers back. When will they start to give me eggs again? All are healthy and no signs of any problems. Also, about how many years does a Buff orp lay eggs? Thanks, Have to go out and buy some farm eggs at the farmmers market![​IMG]
