It sounds like it's just because of the days getting shorter. Ducks don't lay in winter unless you have an artificial light to "lengthen" the days.

Are they molting? They don't lay when they're molting, either. I think my ducks started slowing down in July. Then they started molting. Now they are finished molting, but the days are too short.
