    Welcome,

    Not sure I can be of any help, but will try, if she is at POL. and you just got her it could take time for her to come into lay, based on my own experience, I bought my girls at POL last September and they had little or no comb or wattles then it was only in November that these started to colour up and develop. Got my first eggs at the end of November.

    This is my first experience so I don;t know about other breeds, but it could be they will change now over the next few weeks.

    Hope someone else with more knowledge can help you.

    Jena.
