How often do call ducks lag eggs?

post #1 of 7

My call ducks are 10 months old and this is their first time laying eggs. My 2 hens started laying every second day . Two weeks have past and recently I have been getting eggs daily. Is that normal? Do call ducks generally lay an egg a day?

Yes that is normal, although call ducks are seasonal layers like mallards. Congratulations on the eggs! big_smile.png

Okay, so what is season that call ducks lay in? Will they lay all summer?


One hen seems interested in going broody. If I keep putting her outside will it break it, or will she stop laying eggs at this point?

Thanks!

Hmm I'm not sure (just mallards here) but I think they stop laying in the cold seasons. Maybe ask in the call duck thread? http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/292411/da-cute-and-cuddly-call-duck-thread
