    I have two girls (I hope) but so far, only two eggs over three weeks! Are they both hens? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    from what I can see they look like hens. I know mine are not laying much right now due to molt and all

    hens. They cold be molting, going broody, or there simply could of been a change in weather. I dont know where you live but the temps have been dropping here and i keep getting less eggs.

    Yes, they both look like hens! The weather and time of year are likely causing their egg production to decrease.

    Yup, those are hens. Polish are not big layers. Mine are seasonal and quit when it gets cold or short days.
