    Well, the BR looks about like mine did when she started laying at 18 weeks. Is she squatting when you get close? That was the first sign mine were going to lay. In fact, my BR's face was still just pinkish when she started to lay.

    Getting there, but not red enough yet. Another 3-4 weeks probably.
