Default Breeding Condition

This is probably a silly question but I'm confused about hens and there breeding condition. Does a hens cere only change colour if there is a nest box and the right circumstances to breed or does it happen to every hen regardless of circumstances?

They will go in (dark brown cere) and out of condition (creamy white cere) regardless if there is a nest or the right circumstances are met for them to breed or not. You can compare this as a woman's menstrual cycle.

Oh I'm pleased you cleared that up. So why did Suki have a light blue cere and now it is turning a tan colour is that because she was a young hen and now an adult. Thank you

A young, as in not yet mature female can indeed have some faint light bluish colour on the cere, the faint blue colour can also be present later on when the female is out of breeding condition, but it's usually the creamy white colour that is most predominant. At times there isn't even a hint of blue colour and the cere has more of a uniform white colour.

When in the process of coming into breeding condition, the cere will progressively tan till reaching a dark brown colour.

You might find with Suki that she stays in breeding condition for a long time, or a very short time. There are certain things that can affect them.

For an example, Lucy was in breeding condition when I got her, but quickly came out.
She, and some of my other hens, are currently in breeding condition.
They are not behaving differently than they usually do.
None of them are flirting with males more, nor are they looking for a nest and obviously, I don't provide them with anything to encourage any hormonal behaviour.
