Hi everyone, I have 3 Barred Rock Hens and 1 Barred Rock Rooster along with 4 Golden Comets. The BR's are 19 weeks old and haven't started laying yet. I have read on a few posts that the hens combs and waddles will turn red when they are ready to start laying. Does anyone know about this? Quite honestly, other than my Rooster, the other BR's don't have much of a comb or waddle at all. I know it's basically a waiting game, but I'm new to this and just wondered if there's any truth in that. Here's a pic of Freddy Mac(our gentleman rooster) and his most favorite companion, Fannie Mae! Thanks for any info that anyone might have!!
