    I would really like to hear from those of you with Buff Orpingtons. When did your hens start laying, and what is their average egg production like? I've read all the breed specs in books and online, but I'd really value hearing some real world experience from y'all. Thanks!

    They started laying around 22 or 23 weeks, and have layed about 3 eggs a week.
