    Somebody PLEASE tell her to stop teasing me and LAY ALREADY!! She's been squating for two weeks and is going to be 26 weeks this weekend. Look her in the eyes and tell her to get busy already.

    My dear Diva Daisy decided TODAY 2/08 was the day to lay her first egg. Not in the nest box, she chose to lay it right by the side door next to the feeder.

    I'M SO EXCITED!! lol

    I think the polish take a little long to mature. My sister has some that she got last Aug. they were 6 weeks old when she bought them. They are just starting to lay an egg every other day. she has them in breeding pens that are lighted.

    The problem with Polish hens is they spend to much time doing their hair. They are much to busy with this to get around to egg laying. You could try squeezing her to get that first egg out.

    My sentiments exactly, the eyes talk.

    But I hate to burst any bubbles but my polish was the first to start laying. all beit a little late.

    Seriously, when she does watch out, they are machines. It is well worth the wait.

    I would like to know what color eggs she gives you, I get brown and she has the whitest earlobes and should be laying white. ???????

    Good luck, remember all good things come to he (or her)who waits.

    My silver laced polish has just started laying about 2 weeks ago, she's about 30 weeks now.
    I'm still waiting on the other 2 to lay.

    And she lays white eggs.
