    Our EE Harley is about 4 months old, I count in weeks, so 17 weeks. I'm wondering what her face should look like when it's laying time. Below are pics of her.

    This was her several weeks ago.

    The comb and wattles will become pronounced as normal for the breed and turn a brighter shade of red as she approaches the point of lay. As she matures, she will squat when you reach down as if to pet her. That is another sign of approaching laying.
