Indian Runners and eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have 3 rescues, all as very young ducklings, who are now around 11 months old. Indian runners, 1 drake and 2 ladies. I am bringing in some young'ns next month (more runners) but was wondering one thing.

Why don't the girls lay eggs?

I live outside of Boston if that helps.

They are actually now all 3 sleeping inside the chicken coop since it got real cold here.

I have watched them mate, which btw is absolutely hilarious, but was wondering why neither female has ever laid an egg.

I would love to have one hatch a little group someday.

Thanks

Curt

My runners started laying around 5 or 6 months old.  I don't know if yours will wait until spring to start laying now.  My runners are very good layers I'm still getting eggs even tho it's the middle of winter.  I know your anxious to get that first egg when they start laying you will be over run with eggs. Don't forget to provide with a layer food and oyster shell.
