Hi, I have 20 pullets, 7 different breeds. They will be 15 weeks old on tuesday, in 3 days. One of them, a Rhode Island Red, her comb and waddles have turned bright red. None of the others have red or even close to red combs yet. Is it possible that this one pullet could start laying this young? I have read they can start as early as 16 weeks but is unusual. Im thinking i should get my butt in gear and get their nesting boxes ready. I figured i had another month at least but maybe not?
