    I hate this time in the chicken cycle. The Roos are frisky, the pullets are squatting, their combs are red....

    [​IMG] I know! I know! I have seven pullets who are 23 weeks old. I know at least two or three are laying, and except for my BR Holly, not sure who they are. Thought my black Orp pullet was laying, but I put her in with Suede the other day and no eggs from her in that coop. There are four Barred Rocks, one Black Orp, one black Ameraucana and my Blue Orp/Buff Brahma cross, Glenda. They've been red in the face for weeks, just like yours. Can't be long, D.
