    Does anyone know when golden comets start laying eggs? Mine is 13.5 weeks and I am wondering if she will be laying soon.

    She looks like she's close! Is she exhibiting squatting behavior, trying out the nest box?

    No, but her face will get red and turn back to her regular skin color if that is normal. Actually it is red a lot

    I would say you will start getting eggs sometime between age 18 weeks to 22 weeks.
