    I have two SL Wyandottes that are about 29 weeks old. Neither has started laying yet. One of them has a very full or swollen area under the waddle. Is that normal? Maybe she is just maturing? Seems very healthy otherwise. It is different from the others which is why I ask. I have a white Leghorn and Golden Sex Link that are the same age and have been laying for about 6 weeks. Their "chins" look normal. My other SLW doesn't have that fullness either.

    Here she is, Tammy:

    I dont' think that's normal and would suggest you post under emergencies to get experienced input and opinions.
