    Ummm, I think, and I may be wrong, that you have a couple of weeks left or so... no significant comb or wattle development... but hopefully I AM wrong! [​IMG]

    Soooooo Yes she is laying, and also she still looks like that with the tiny comb and wattles, I KNOW that she is laying because I've seen her come out of the nest box with a wet egg in there. [​IMG]
