I have been waiting for my chickens to squat and maybe start producing eggs, they are shy of 19 weeks old. I always thought out of all my chickens that the Golden Comets would squat and lay first (because the are faster maturing). But I think they were beaten by the Wyandotte hens. When I was trying to get the guineas out of the chicken coop a Wyandotte pullet happened to be in front of me so I tried petting it. But instead of letting out a light squak and walking away from me it stayed there and appeared to be squatting. But I'm not sure because it didn't let its wings out far and didn't squat down fully. When chickens first squat is their "form" usually off? I do have a rooster and have heard that hens will not squat for a human if a rooster is present, so I was just wondering if this incident was a possible attempt at squatting. Their wattles are about 1/4-1/3 the size of a fully mature hen, but their faces are getting redder by the day. One more question (not important), why does my rooster take more interest in mating with the guineas than the hens, he never mates the hens but does with the guineas.
