    Mine hatched April 19th and, judging by the size of their comb and wattles they are not near ready to lay yet. My RIR's, same age, look much more mature. Their combs and wattles are much bigger and redder than my BO's. When the comb and wattles get a lot bigger and start turning red and their face starts turning red then it will be getting close. Only one of mine is laying and she has laid a total of 7. They aren't real big, but one of them was a double yolk egg.
