    Based on the fact that you haven't stated an age or breed it will be a rough guess on my part. Yes she will lay in time. Her wattles and comb will redden up when she is getting new to laying, she will need free access to grit/ oyster grit during this time and protein when she starts to lay. She looks quite small so I would say maybe 2+ months
