    I have 1 Mille Fleur D'uccle and 1 Serama that are 24 weeks old
    2 Coronation Sussex, 1 French Black Copper Marans, and 1 Wheaten Ameraucana that are 20/21 weeks old
    and 1 California Grey pullet that's 19/20 weeks old.....
    The only ones with slightly red/red big combs and/or wattles are the Coronation Sussex and the California Grey....
    Should I do the golfball thing??? I have the nesting boxes blocked because they were sleeping in them. Should I unblock them?
    Should I be expecting eggs soon????

    Patience grasshopper it will happen [​IMG]

    Unblock the boxes during the day, wouldn't hurt to put in a few fake eggs. They may take longer to get going due to the short days.
