My Australorps have been an isolated pair since they were born. She is the right age to have begun laying right now (born in April or May of this year), and I've had a light on in the coop for the past two nights. The roo is doing a little jiggy-dance for her (just in the past few days). She has fully developed waddles and comb, and has done a bit of the squatting folks say to look for. My question is: Given their circumstances, do you think she'll wait to lay till she's mated, or might she begin laying without having mated?
