A reward is on offer to the next couple to give birth to a son after no boys were born there for 12 years.
The Polish village of Miejsce Odrzańskie is now under scrutiny from experts to see if there is a deeper rooted issue or if it is just an anomaly.
Head of the local (mostly female) volunteer fire brigade Tomasz Golasz said: It has been going on for several decades. I came to the village, took a local girl for my wife and we had two daughters.
‘I would like to have a son but it’s probably unrealistic. My neighbour also tried and has two daughters. I don’t think women give birth to boys here.’
Mayor Rajmund Frischko has been looking through the village’s history to find out if there has been a similar incidence in the past, according to The First News.
