    Do you know what age she is ?
    He could be breeding her and you’re just not there to witness it.
    I’ve read that polish chickens are slow to mature so that might be why she’s not laying yet.

    No expert here but she looks young. How old is she? When you reach down to touch her does she squat and flatten her wings out?

    I have heard that as well. Mine did not lay until she was 6 months old.

    Welcome to BYC. He isn't trying to breed her because she is immature. Once she matures and starts laying he will breed her.
