I have 8 pullets. 3 and a half months old. One has been developing wattles well the others have not. I got my first egg yesterday. Is wattle development corolated to egg laying?

I think it depends on the breed. My barred rocks developed wattles and their combs got bright red a couple of weeks before the first egg. All of them started couching about a week before they layed.
