I have been reading online and having the BYC family tell me that when the waddle and the comb is red and floppy its a sign that the hen is ready to lay. She is a brown leghorn named Foxy Brown and she is born on June 7th. she free ranges all day with her friends. I have been checking around the backyard and found nothing. Forgot to add that i recently introduced three new chickens to the current flock of five. the three younger chickens were born on September 7th. I hope that didn't mess anything up. Thanks!
