    I have a golden that is 15 weeks of age. How will I know when she is ready to lay? Does anyone have any clues?

    She may start squatting when you come up to her or she may start singing the egg song! Look it up and listen to a recording. Also, you may notice her comb start to grow really fast and turn bright red, that means she's getting close to dropping her first egg! Good luck!
