    Is it possible.. I thought she would be the LAST to go broody.. Only after 2 months of egg-laying.. She has been laying on a nest of two golfballs for 3 days.

    I thought both of these breeds never went broody, so what's up? Is there a nice way to stop her? I don't want to dunk her in cold water.. Especially when it is already cold outside [​IMG]

    yes it is possible. I have one polish that likes to go broody. there is always exceptions to the rule. chickens can't read their breed descriptions [​IMG]

    My pure polish just refuses to lay. She was POL when we got her in Aug. Not a single egg! Guess I should count my blessings [​IMG]
