    Just wondering at what age do Hens get their red colors on their face.. I have 6 all the same age and they seem to be all maturing at different speeds... This is my first time owning chickens so a little unsure :)

    It depends mainly on the breed. Are yours all the same breed?

    They should start laying between 20-25 weeks, their wattles and combs should start getting colour in them after about 6 weeks. I could be wrong on the colour, I am just going by all the chickens I have ever had :)

    Then again, mine are 6 weeks tomorrow and no colour at all yet lol

    All born on the same day, I have 3 isa browns, 2 black australorps and 1 white leghorn!
    The isa browns are developing totally different! They don't have big combs or anything 1 is just really red I. The face and the other has nothing.. And the australorps totally different also, one is developing a lot quicker.. And the leghorn has a nice comb growing but no red lol
