    My girls are about 15 weeks now..when do their combs come in? Two of them have little wee ones starting to grow, the other two almost nothing.

    on edit: actually I just counted and they are almost 17 weeks now.

    Good question... my girls have rose combs but the campines have the tall combs and they are just finally starting to grow in also.

    They are almost 15 weeks. On a bright note, I am noticing their combs and waddles getting redder and redder finally..... come on eggies! I'm really hoping I don't have to wait ALL winter for some eggs!

    Me too, Arlee! It just dawned on me that I might be able to expect eggs any time now. Good thing I got the nest box finished and installed last weekend!
