I have a hen that is about 10 1/2 weeks old. I noticed she has a red comb now for about a week. Its didnt dawn on me until now but dont they get red combs right before they lay? I thought she was to early. Perhaps since I dont really mind when shes starts laying than she will have them early. Maybe thats the trick, dont care and they will lay sooner, lol. Anyways its deff. a hen. Anyone know whats going on?
