A few weeks ago I added 6 young Buff Orps to my existing flock of adult Buffs Orps. In the last 4 days I have collected 2 tiny eggs along with the usual eggs. The younger girls are only 14 weeks old. Has anyone heard of a Buff Orp laying so early?

It is pretty unheard of to have hens lay before 16 weeks old.

You mentioned the younger girls were 14 weeks; how old are the older girls? :)

Do you have any photos of the eggs and the chickens?

The older hens are just over a year old. I don't have pics, but will get some.
