My girls are just about 20 weeks old and I am going bonkers going out every day looking for eggs. I haven't been spending much time with them since I've been back to work (out the door at 6:30am and back home around 4:30pm) I've really noticed some changes in a few of them. My "headless chicken" Tessy, has even started developing her comb. Question is, I've noticed one of my black sexies has developed Bloomers (for lack of a better word) She seems fuller in the rump. Is this a sign that she may be laying soon? Her comb is really huge and red now compared to what it was a back in late July. None of them have started doing the squatting I've hear people talking about. These days it's just B****, B****, B****, B****, B****!!! Because they can't get out and free-range all day.
