Do all chickens squatt before they are getting ready to lay their first egg??

No. Some just lay without ever squatting. But if they do squat, it's pretty soon that they'll be laying. (I think mine took about a week or so.)
 
I have three that are laying, but only one has ever squatted. The squatting one was the first to lay (they are all the same age, but she started laying a month before the others), and also the top hen in the pecking order. Not sure if those factors are related at all.
