Why does her comb look like this? How old is she and when will she lay?

    So I got my light brahma about 1 and 1/2 months ago and she was a pullet( don't know the age) I was wondering if you could give me an estaminet on age and by her face/body when she will lay. She has three rows of comb but they are so small... she is a rescue but I don't know if her comb was cut for cosmetics or if they are just small.... Thank you so much!!! :D

    Is her face red enough to lay? I am worried about her comb :/
     
  3. She is super pretty! She looks about the age to start laying!

    I think it's a little pale. She's probably young and once she starts to age to the point of lay, it'll redden up and get a bit bigger. I wouldn't worry!

    do you have any idea how old it was when you got it, or a pic of it then? That could help age.
    Do you have a profile shot?
