I'm actually on day 20 with 4 polish eggs from my own stock. My polish have been mocking me. They finally started to lay again after the super hot summer and then all of a sudden nothing! They better step it up before it's time to set for the new years hatch. Good news though my new ameraucana roo is doing his job in the breeding flock! All of the eggs I set from him over a week ago are going strong. I am hoping to find some black or buff LF ameraucana eggs for the hatch (or any other time really, I havent turned off the incubator for more then 3 weeks since I got it LOL)
My Polish are butt heads like that too. They lay for 2 weeks then drop down to every other day, then stop. I have not had a egg from the since the week of Sept. 20th. They are taking a long molt. I know because I set the last 3 eggs they laid.
I have not shut my incubator down since I got it at all in March. I WILL shut it down for a bit after this New Years hatch.
Unless the Polish start laying
... or until the Easter hatch?
I'm already scheming what to hatch for that.
