I have 5 beautiful Buff Chanteclers, they were hatched on April 29th and I'm wondering when I should expect them to be ready to lay. While they don't really have any combs to speak of, the fleshy bits on their faces are still pink, not red like my Catalanas, ameraucanas and barnevelders. My Buff Catalanas are already laying, but I suspect that my barnevelders, polish, ameraucanas and barred rock will take a bit longer to start laying now that fall is here. I was hoping that this wouldn't be the case for the Chanteclers. Will their faces turn red? I also wondered if it is true that they keep laying well right through the winter. Any words of wisdom on Chanteclers?
