Can anyone help me why won't my muscovy ducks lay eggs?

A man gave me some grown muscovy ducks and they still haven't layed yet.
Does anyone know why?sad.png

Could they be too old to lay, or maybe will lay later in the spring.

not a perfect answer but most chickens don't lay past 2-3(high production) 4-5 (slower) but can live up to 10-15 years, I know ducks and geese can live longer but I don't know how long their laying years last for.

By the way - stress will shut down a duck's laying.  Glad they are feeling a little more at home.
