Tom said stick them in the bator, i did. 5 hrs. later i see movement. they look to be a few days away yet but they are past due. 8 eggs from one hen and one from another.

    I'll have to get pics of the polish later. Their hairdos are hilarious.

    That is exactly how we ended up with Polish many years back - I saw them and just *had* to have "the chickens with the funny hair" (I was like 7 ish at the time).
