    My Rir that hasn't laid an egg yet, is getting a bigger, redder comb and wattle day by day,
    She,s about 4/5 months old and I've had her a month, my other has been saying an egg every day, so I know I have the feed / conditions ok, Can somebody look at my avatar pic, and tell me what they think, she is the one nearest the camera, with the bright red , big wattle n comb,
    Any advice would be appreciated

    Hmmm....the birds in your avatar are not RIR? What is it you are concerned about? The bird pictured is a pullet who just isn't ready to lay an egg yet (though she looks to be close) - the only "advice" I can offer is be patient, because that is all you can do.

    Thank you, I'm not too bothered about the eggs, I'm more bothered about having to find a new home for her if she crowed and my daughter loves them both
    Thanks for advice

    Your ladies look to be red sex links, and both female.

    Its not your fault. So many ppl are told they have RIR when in truth they have RSL or PR.

    As long as they don't crow, and I get the occasional egg
    I'm happy :D

    Oh, you'll get more than the occasional egg - these girls will be egg laying machines for the next couple of years.
