All of my chickens are 15 weeks old. I’m a newbie chicken owner but have some questions about development and coloring. I have 3 dark brahmas (1 roo, 2 pullets), 3 crested cream legbars (all pullets), and 2 California grays (pullets). From my research I’ve found that California grays typically lay at 20-24 weeks, crested cream legbars around 5 months, and brahmas usually 6-12 months. Ive also learned that combs and wattles turn bright red right before they lay. So am I going crazy because my brahmas seem to be the most red followed by onyx. The others are certainly trailing behind. Is this normal?
