Peking duck laying soft shell eggs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi I am a new member have read articles on here about soft shell eggs but needed to find out more info.  My eking is aobut 8 months old both her and my male.  I feed them the same lay crumbles I feed my chickens plus give them corn I have given her some oyster shells numerous times.  I have once had her lay hard shell eggs and then all of a sudden they all come out looking like rubber read something about they need calcium but what kind of food would I need to get for them that would supply the right amount of calcium. They free roam my land they love the pond and spen 90% down there now lso have a small pool for them and notice sometimes when bad weather looks like it is moving in they come u by the pool and stay there I guess till weather clears up.  Just cannot figure it out now so Please any help will be welcome .  U live in MIssissippi  TY for any info

 

I know Pekings do not set but if I can get hard shell eggs I can hatch

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

If you post on the "Duck Thread,"  they should be able to  help you out.   I DO know with chickens you do not have cockerels or roosters, eating layer feed.  I would imagine it to be the same with drakes.   Layer feed has calcium  for shell development.   Males do not lay eggs and the extra calcium  can affect them negatively.
