Does the color of the hens face (the red part) determine how old they are and when they will be ready to lay eggs; they are barred rocks? Mine look a little pink around the face still and wasnt told how old they were when we got them.... Thanks

WOW! That is a whopper!!! I seen them squatting on the ground today but I think that is just because its cold and windy out. I was under the assumption they was 5 months old so maybe here soon. Hopefully.......

i think you might find it is squatting not the wind , i think after you see them squat can be between 5 days and 2 weeks to first lay . keep a close eye on them as i think they can lay any where as mine did in the dogs kennel lol
