It's hard to tell from your pic, but she does look young/small. Do you know how old she is?
What to look for? Reddening of comb and wattles. Going into a squat when you reach down to pet or shoo her. Noisy, pacing behavior.
Hope that helps.
Please refrain from double posting. Your picture is too small to tell anything specific about your hen.
just seeing if this makes it bigger
No it doesnt , her face is going from pink to red and she is getting noisier...
Usually there are clues you see or find if they are going to lay an egg. Firstly, look at the face. Is it pale pink or red as is if they have a bad rash. (Lol, thats what i thought they had when they had the red face.) If they are going to lay an egg at that moment, usually i would hear a cry/crow that sounds different.
If you want to make it lay, i suggest has a comfortable environment and has good food with lots of protein, calcium, etc. Make sure it knows where the nest boxes are. It also depends on the breed. Some breeds mature quickly and some dont so just be patient and youll get your egg from her soon. Good luck!
