    My 17 week gold sex linked is squatting like crazy when we go to pet her. This has been going on for two weeks.
    She has a little comb and barely has a wattle.

    My Barred Rocks are the same age with a lot of color in the face but much smaller in size. The Barred Rock are not squatting at all.

    Do you think she is ready to lay?

    Not immediately, but within two-three weeks, I would say.
