    They look like Buff Orpington hens. Closer pics would help though

    Alright thanks guys. They haven't started laying yet and they were hatched early May.

    Is this normal for a Buffy?

    From what I know, buff Orpingtons do take longer to mature. Our BO roo
    was 6+ months by the time he crowed for the first time!

    Yep, pretty buff Orpington hens. They are slower to mature overall, so eggs may be a while yet.
