Trying again...computer glitches! Ugh!

Question - how long have you had to wait for your first egg. I have 22 week old Buff Orpingtons in Central IL. They have started squating (at least a couple of them), but I'm hating the waiting game. So, what's the longest you've had to wait for eggs? Just curious...

Hi Andy and welcome to BYC!

The longest I waited for an egg was 9 1/2 months, from two of my brahma hens.
Buff orps, like the brahmas, are slower growing, late maturing birds. I suspect you may be waiting awhile longer, sorry.

My girls (two 6mo Cohcins and one 4 month BR) aren't laying yet. They will both supposedly start in another 2 month or there abouts. However we are coming in shorter days and less sunlight so that may affect when they start to lay eggs too.

I'm still waiting, at a few days shy of 8 months.

It's getting to be chicken soup weather out and some of those cochins are looking nice and tasty.

My Plymouth White Rock is at 21 week old and looks like it is getting close, hopefully I"ll get an egg in the next few days. I have two 9 week old Golden Comets that are suppose to lay eggs sooner than later, and am expecting eggs from them at 15 weeks, which will be around christmas time.

I am still waiting too. I have 5 Buff Orpingtons, 3 Black Jersey Giants, and 6 Silverlaced Wyandottes. All of them are 23 weeks and I have not gotten a single egg yet
