    I have a HUGE BLRW pullet who was hatched the end of April. In the last 2 weeks she has started squatting, her comb and wattles have became even more red than I could imagine and are quite large. Her pelvic bones have spread out so I can fit almost 4 fingers between the opening. Where is my eggs?

    Does she free range? She might have found a good spot instead of those nice cozy hay lined nest boxes that you provided. If not, she is probably close and will lay when she is ready. A watch chicken never lays.
