    I knew about the combs and wattles being signs of them starting to LAY , but does red face indicate the same thing ?

    I wish I could help, since mine are looking the same and adding very strange sounding, very loud Bwaaks too.

    I posted yesterday hoping for an answer, but I'm still waiting. Maybe you'll have more luck.

    It depends on the breeds. Some do have red faces, some don't.

    I'm not positive but that flesh (comb wattles and face) looks to be all the same type. All my birds have red faces and they lay great. When the combs pale the rest of the face paled also. I'm pretty sure they all indicate the same thing.

    bump means to make that thread go to the top of page 1 so that more people will see it and hopefully post an answer to it. It is also against the rules to "bump" a thread. It is considered a form of spam.
