    Ruby is a 20 week old Black Australorp that I am anxiously awaiting eggs from [​IMG]
    How close does she look to laying? How big will their comb be when they get close to laying anyway??

    She should lay her first eggs within a few weeks. I don't think the comb will get any bigger, just maybe a tad more red.

    She is getting really close, I'd say a couple weeks, mine started to lay around 20 weeks, is she around that age?

    I just noticed that in all the pictures I took a few days ago, her comb looked a little more pink than the red it is today [​IMG] I think it might have been the lighting
    Here's a few more pictures I took today~
