    Yes! She looks a lot like mine at nine weeks. Now she looks like this at 21 weeks (not laying yet). [​IMG]

    When do they generally start laying. Mine are about 5 months (21 weeks) and showing no signs of laying. ***sigh***

    Mine are about the same age. ... two showing no signs but one has spent all day looking for a nest. .. she finally ended up in the coop but sadly not the nesting box I slaved on. ...:-( no egg yet but I'm waiting to hand out cigars.

    Update! She just layed!

    Edit.... she is a BLRB not an SL. Our SL's comb and wattles haven't even reddened up yet. Stop by for a cigar anyway though!

    Congratulations!

    Maybe a silly question, but it's the development of red comb and wattles signal the start of egg paying? In all breeds? How long after?

    Thanks
