Everyone keeps telling me to check the comb on my hens. That they will turn redder as they get close to laying. But my question is how red? I have a BO and 3 SLW and they are all different shades of red. The BO is still pink in my opinion but 2 of the SLW look way more red this week than the last few weeks. They are 15 weeks, give or take a few days. They do have extra light in the coop also. My BO boy started crowing about 3 weeks ago but is still in the practice stage. He isn't real strong at it yet. He has been mounting the girls occasionally for the last couple of weeks.
