    I have a Black sex Link (BSL) who is about 5-5 1/2 months old. 2 weeks ago i had a thread about her, but since thah, she cas changed a lot! Her comb is growing not, but no squatting yet. Could i get an estimation on when she'll start laying? Aslo, what else could i look for in a ready layer? Here are some pics! if you need any more just say so! [​IMG]

    She looks like she could start laying at any time (based on the red comb, the redder the closer), however since she hasn't started the squatting behavior yet it could still be a bit. I found with mine that waiting for that 1st egg seem to take forever. Then when you least expect it.....bam egg time. Good luck. [​IMG]
