    Our cochin is 24 weeks old, she turns 25 weeks old tomorrow. Her comb and wattles are quite pink today. She hasn't squatted yet. [​IMG]
    Perhaps a few more weeks till that squat?

    She doesn't look completely ready yet. The pink needs to turn a bit more red. When she finally squats for you, she will probably lay within 1 week or 2 at the latest, after the squat. :)

    I should've asked "She getting close to start getting ready to lay?" [​IMG] What a question! The pink just popped out to me today. I hope she'll be like our EE who just laid her first on Monday. She squatted last Monday.

    She should be laying soon. I know it is hard to be patient. LOL

    We have 5 white leghorn layers so it's nice having white and blue/green eggs but we'd love that brown!
