My Buff's should be getting ready to start laying. Any indicators as when this may begin ??
My buffs started squating and checking out the nest boxes about a week before they started laying.
Thanks for that. Mine are starting to fool around in the nest boxes and squatting. I hope this is the indicator. Someone also told me that their combs will get red when they get ready.......beats me. Thanx again.
Quote:My Leghorns' combs were getting bright red (all last month) and I got my first egg yesterday. They are only 4.5 mo old. I think that is really early but it happened. I've also got one that seems very protective all of a sudden. (defensive too)
