    Pullet, if she's not laying yet, she will be any day now.

    She's not laying yet that's what made me think maybe it was a rooster. Thank you.

    Orpingtons can be a bit slower to start laying than other breeds. 22 to 28 weeks is the average range for when they start to lay.

    I have read that. I have 4 orphingtons, 2 buffs and 2 lavenders. The two buffs have red combs the lavenders not even close. They are all the same age. So I just wasn't sure. Thank you so very much for your help! Can't wait for them to lay!!
