Duck breeds

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have 2 pet ducks and im wanting to know what breeds they are?

(I saved them from being killed and I am unsure of their age)

I do know 1 of them is male and 1 is female. I have had them for quite a while now and the female has never laid an egg.

Why would she not lay?

Thanks

Sorry I don't know anything about ducks   - maybe she is too young or too old to lay.  If you put "duck thread," in the searchbox  if will take you there .  The duck folks would have much better answers for you .  Welcome to Backyard chickens.
