Who is ready to lay and who is not??

Definitely ready to lay, as they're filled out and have big red combs and wattles.

Close to laying
Not quite there--comb will likely redden up more before she lays her first egg.
Not yet. Still doesn't have a big red comb/wattles, and needs to fill out into a hen's body.
Close. About as close as the Barred Rock in the second photo, IMO.

They are all 20 weeks old!!!
Your egg basket should be full and colorful soon!
