    So my Orpington just started to squat yesterday when approached in a submissive fashion. She is approx 26-28 weeks old. Wondering from this point how much longer we have until our first gift from her?

    I have a Swedish Flower that same age, but she is still just pissy when you get near her.

    Any Ideas?

    Anywhere from 1 day to another few weeks. But I would expect one sooner.
