One of my girls, a Rhodie named Chico, has been squatting. Today she sat on my lap and I scratched her back, when I did she started trembling and squatted. After I scratched her back she frilled her feathers and shook. I have also noticed that her pelvis is markedly wider than the other chickens.

Is it egg time!?

While there are some breeds that are slower to lay, there are also many that start right around 5 months. In fact, most of mine have laid their first egg right on the nose of 5 months. To the OP, it sounds like your girl is getting very close.
