Hi, i have eight month old blue call ducks. It is March 2nd today and about 65 degrees and they haven't started laying. When should they start laying? Thanks

My guess is that you got your Calls around the time I got my two Cayugas and Blue Runner, because even at about 8 months old, they are JUST NOW starting to lay. I'm sure that your ducks will soon begin now that we're getting out of the winter months; some duck breeds are seasonal layers. My goodness, for a few months there, I wasn't getting any eggs (and still aren't) out of our Khakis, Mallard, and Buff, either! :)
