The wattles look very red to me. We are at 20 weeks. EE hens.

Wait till they squat. I give it about 4 weeks max until they lay in my own experience. The whole pubic bone trick is..not as definitive for me as they squat was. I was out in the yard while the ladies were doin' their thing and i surprised an EE and she squatted and I previously haven't seen her do this and two weeks later she gave me a green tinted egg three days ago.

I have seen my BO once squat take almost a month! A WHOLE MONTH. I was losing it for the egg wait. The wattles and comb trick was just a "time to start egg watch" for me.
