    Preach it! We just introduce two 12 wk olds (RIR, and Dominique). The ISA Brown still does not have a red comb and wattle. The Dominique has a very red comb and wattle but too young.
    Hopefully you and me will not have to turn them into fryers... earn your keep ladies!

    I have eighteen 15 week old pullets. On two of them the face and comb are getting really really bright red. I have a feeling we're not too far away from our first egg.

    Not sure what to expect ,but can't wait!

    Is this a support group for people with egg anxiety? I'm expecting eggs around the end of this month or beginning of July. A friend told me her local grocery stores in Texas are rationing eggs due to millions of commercial chickens dying from a bird flu. Prices are going up accordingly due to macro-economics (supply and demand). If my chickens start laying by mid July it will be perfect timing.
