Title is the question
There are several signs of oncoming egg production:
Redder, larger combs and wattles.
"Squatting" as you reach down to pick the bird up. Squatting is the natural response of a hen who is ready to mate with a rooster.
Investigating the nest boxes frequently.
Cackling for no apparent reason.
Sometimes a change in voice to a deeper sound.
If you see any/all of those signs, chances are you will get eggs in 1-4 weeks.
X2 on this advice.
Patience, grasshopper It seems like they'll never lay and then....whoops! There's an egg!
