    My RIR is 24 weeks today and I'm still waiting on her first egg. Her wattles and comb are bright red and ginormous! The comb flops over. I'm positive she's a hen, she has been squatting maybe a week for me.

    Their wattles are quite big and they are all very red in the face. My BR was about that size of comb and wattles when she started laying. Here is my RIR today. Sorry for having to snap a shot through the hard wire cloth but it's not free ranging time yet.
