    I have a SLW pullet that is approx 13weeks old. She has no visible wattles and a tiny comb, but her face seems really red, like, on par with the 20 or so week Welsummers who I'm hoping start to lay any day now. Just wondering if this is normal for Wyandottes?

    You'd have to show photos, honestly. . . It sounds kinda normal though. At this age, she should indeed start to get a more red face, and evientually some developed comb and wattles.

    My two hatchery SLWs sure did. I was worried about them for weeks but both are laying eggs now! [​IMG]

    Not a fabulous photo (I was actually trying to take it of the LS). This was taken a week ago, so approx. 12 weeks.

    Yep, just a pullet getting ready. [​IMG]

    The columbian colored chick behind her though, if it is younger, is a cockerel.
