This morning I went outside to let the chickens outside, 3 stayed in because it was snowy and the other 13 went out. When I went up to check on them, one of my RIR mixed with bantam starting doing the egg song along with squatting, just not in the nest box. Her comb isn't very red but it is darkening. My question is.. can a chicken this small already be preparing to lay?! Sorry for blurry pictures, the muscovies were behind her and she wanted to go eat. Her comb is redder than her wattles but she didn't want to hold still so they don't look very red.
