    Looks like it. A pullets combs and wattles start to grow and turn red when they hit laying age.

    She's starting to get loud, sounded like a rooster we just had to get rid of recently. We'd be heartbroken to have another rooster
    Thanks!!

    Another sign she is close to laying. They sound hysterical when they start laying. Like little raptors or something growling and singing their egg song.
