    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Two of my six girls have had red wattles/comb since around 14wks, around 16 weeks three more pullets joined their little group. Now they are basically 17wks and tonight during play time I saw one of the red sex links (red comb since 14wks) squat! I couldn't help it I squealed [​IMG]

    Thanks! If I'm this excited over her squatting then I can only imagine how I'll be when she actually lays [​IMG]

    4 out of my 5 white leghorns have squatted! It's so exciting! I really love it because I can actually pick them up now, they are less inclined to run away. Mine are 18-19 weeks old.

    I feel the same way! My leghorns are so flighty! Once I actually catch them, they are calm and like snuggles. Mine are 18 weeks.


    Congrats ChirpyChicks!!!!! I just got my first couple of squatters too. :D

    The oldest, Fiona, is obviously the best. I can pet her too. Here she was a couple days ago, I'm sure her comb and wattles have grown more after this pic. Gotta love egg laying time! Any day now!
