I am trying to find out the various signs that a pullet is ready to lay her first egg. I know that her face and comb will get red as the time aproaches, but that is the only indicator I know. Can you wise chicken keepers tell me other signs to look for. My RIR is about 18 weeks old and her face and comb are red. My EE is the same age but her face and comb are much lighter. I am waiting with bated breath for the RIR to lay her first egg.
