    When will this darn bird start laying?? She has had bright red comb and wattles for several weeks now. She has squatted only once that I have seen (yesterday). We have seen her in the nest box just about every day since our other BR started laying on the 18th, but no eggs yet. I'm starting to get impatient!!!

    Be patient. It will happen but in the meantime make sure she is not laying somewhere that you can't see them. I had this happen with one of my cochins. Found out she was laying behind on of the feeders and I hadn't even thought to look there.
